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…
