Leak, Anne E.; Owens, Lindsay M.; Martin, Kelly Norris; Zwickl, Benjamin M. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
K-12 students need to become familiar with engineering because 21st-century careers integrate engineering practices across all science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. While the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) emphasize learning real science and engineering practices, further work is needed to authenticate…

Kozan, Kadir; Caskurlu, Secil; Guzey, Siddika Selcen – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Earlier integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education research has shown effects on students' attitudes toward STEM careers, actual and perceived learning, and interest in pursuing a STEM career in their future endeavors. The current systematic review purported to review the recent K-12 integrated STEM education…

Zhou, Shuqi; Merzdorf, Hillary E.; Douglas, Kerrie A.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
This study aimed to develop a K-12 classroom observation protocol to assess K-12 teachers' implementation of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) integration. The intended purpose of the observation protocol is for researchers to examine how K-12 teachers implement the STEM integrated curriculum. Based on research on STEM…

Pilar Pazos; Francisco Cima Cohuo; Jennifer Kidd; Kristie Gutierrez; Krishnanand Kaipa; Orlando Ayala – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Global efforts are underway to include engineering in pre-college curricula. In the USA, this pursuit led to the inclusion of engineering content in the most recent version of the Next Generation Science Standards that guide K-12 science. As these standards become part of the K-12 curriculum, teachers face the challenge of gaining basic…

Delen, Ibrahim; Yuksel, Tugba – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
In the past hundred years, there have been a number of pandemics that have affected the entire world, including the 1918 H1N1 influenza pandemic, the 1957 H2N2 influenza pandemic, and the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. While responses to the most recent H1N1 influenza pandemic remained local, the COVID-19 pandemic, on the other hand, resulted in…

Holly, James, Jr. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Engineering educators must consider how the cultural backgrounds of students coincide (or diverge) with the epistemological and ontological formation of an engineer. Hence, this work is presented as an exhortation to engineering educators, particularly in a precollege context, to critically evaluate how race-conscious pedagogies can be exerted in…

Silvestri, Katarina N.; Jordan, Michelle E.; Paugh, Patricia; McVee, Mary B.; Schallert, Diane L. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Given the increased attention on pre-college engineering education and its disciplinary nature pertaining to language, discourses, and communicative practices, this "state-of-the-art literature review" focused on findings of research articles informed by qualitative and quantitative data to foreground communicative literacies within…

Smith, Shaunna; Talley, Kimberly; Ortiz, Araceli; Sriraman, Vedaraman – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This paper reports on findings from a group of ten teachers who were enrolled in a semester-long, graduate-level educational technology course that used design-based learning to explore the integration of making and the engineering design process into a variety of K-12 educational contexts. Using convergent mixed methods, this study examines how…

Strimel, Greg; Huffman, Tanner; Grubbs, Michael; Kim, Eunhye; Gurganus, Jamie – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Engineering education has increasingly become an area of interest at the P-12 level, yet attempts to align engineering knowledge, skills, and habits to existing elementary and secondary educational programming have been parochial in nature (e.g., for a specific context, grade, or initiative). Consequently, a need exists to establish a coherent…

Anwar, Saira; Bascou, Nicholas Alexander; Meneske, Muhsin; Kardgar, Asefeh – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
There has been a steady increase in the number of studies investigating educational robotics and its impact on academic and social skills of young learners. Educational robots are used both in and out of school environments to enhance K-12 students' interest, engagement, and academic achievement in various fields of STEM education. Some prior…

Weinberg, Paul J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
Because reasoning about mechanism is critical to disciplined inquiry in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) domains, this study focuses on ways to support the development of this form of reasoning. This study attends to how mechanistic reasoning is constituted through mathematical description. This study draws upon Smith's…

Mathis, Corey A.; Siverling, Emilie A.; Glancy, Aran W.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
One of the fundamental practices identified in Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is argumentation, which has been researched in P-12 science education for the previous two decades but has yet to be studied within the context of P-12 engineering education. This research explores how elementary and middle school science teachers incorporated…

Crotty, Elizabeth A.; Guzey, Selcen S.; Roehrig, Gillian H.; Glancy, Aran W.; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
This study examined different approaches to integrating engineering practices in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curriculum units. These various approaches were correlated with student outcomes on engineering assessment items. There are numerous reform documents in the USA and around the world that emphasize the need to…

Moore, Tamara J.; Glancy, Aran W.; Tank, Kristina M.; Kersten, Jennifer A.; Smith, Karl A.; Stohlmann, Micah S. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2014
Recent U.S. national documents have laid the foundation for highlighting the connection between science, technology, engineering and mathematics at the K-12 level. However, there is not a clear definition or a well-established tradition of what constitutes a quality engineering education at the K-12 level. The purpose of the current work has been…

Lee, Ahlam – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2013
Many STEM studies have focused on traditional learning contexts, such as math- and science-related learning factors, as pre-college learning predictors for STEM major choices in colleges. Few studies have considered a progressive learning activity embedded within STEM contexts. This study chose computer-based learning activities in K-12 math…
