Kelli M. Paul; Karen Miel; Merredith D. Portsmore; Adam Maltese – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Engineering outreach programs often portray outreach educators as role models for youth. It is widely believed that introducing youth, especially girls, to potential engineering role models will broaden participation in engineering majors and careers. Based on interviews with and surveys of fourth- and fifth-grade girls participating in an…

Goldstein, Molly H.; Adams, Robin S.; Purzer, Senay – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Trade-off decisions, which necessitate striking a balance between two or more desirable but competing features, are a crucial part of design practice. However, they are known to be difficult for student designers to make. While designers, educators, and researchers have numerous methods to assess the quality of design artifacts, these methods are…

Wilson-Lopez, Amy; Acosta-Feliz, Jorge – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Due to economic inequality in society, millions of Latinx high school youth work after-school jobs and summer jobs in order to provide additional income for their families. The purpose of this qualitative study, conducted with transnational Latinx youth, was to identify the engineering-related skills and bodies of knowledge they developed and…

Calabrese Barton, Angela M.; Schenkel, Kathleen; Tan, Edna – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Inequities in opportunities to learn and become in engineering, especially for minoritized youth, are enduring and systemic. How students experience engineering education, through curriculum, pedagogy, and teacher/student interactions, all shape opportunities for identity development. In this paper we draw upon cultural studies and critical…

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…

Bowen, Bradley; Peterson, Bryanne – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
As education works to reconnect student learning to something more than standardized testing, project-based learning (PBL) has become a popular way to increase student engagement while providing more authentic applications of student knowledge. While research regarding PBL is bountiful, little has been done to connect this body of research with…

Hansen, Alexandria K.; McBeath, Jasmine K.; Harlow, Danielle B. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
This study used cultural historical activity theory to make meaning of a digital fabrication project situated in the complexity of a classroom. Using an ethnographic perspective, we observed 14 students (aged 13-14) in a middle school's creative design and engineering class inspired by the Maker Movement. Working with the classroom teacher, a…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
To effectively incorporate engineering into their instruction, K-12 teachers need sufficient knowledge of the engineering discipline. An important component of teachers' engineering knowledge is their understanding of the nature of engineering: what engineers do, the epistemological underpinnings of engineering, and the relationships between…
