Lottero-Perdue, Pamela S.; Parry, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
This mixed methods study examines perspectives on failure in the classroom by elementary teachers new to teaching engineering. The study participants included 254 teachers in third, fourth, and fifth grade who responded to survey questions about failure, as well as a subset of 38 of those teachers who participated in interviews about failure. The…

Sengupta-Irving, Tesha; Mercado, Janet – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
While integrating engineering into science education is not new in the United States, technology and engineering have not been well emphasized in the preparation and professional development of science teachers. Recent science education reforms integrate science and engineering throughout K-12 education, making it imperative to explore the…

Santoso, Harry B.; Lawanto, Oenardi; Becker, Kurt; Fang, Ning; Reeve, Edward M. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2014
The purpose of this research was to investigate high school students' computer self-efficacy (CSE) and learning behavior in a self-regulated learning (SRL) framework while utilizing an interactive learning module. The researcher hypothesizes that CSE is reflected on cognitive actions and metacognitive strategies while the students are engaged with…

Dare, Emily A.; Ellis, Joshua A.; Roehrig, Gillian H. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2014
It is difficult to ignore the increased use of technological innovations in today's world, which has led to various calls for the integration of engineering into K-12 science standards. The need to understand how engineering is currently being brought to science classrooms is apparent and necessary in order to address these calls for integration.…

English, Lyn D.; Hudson, Peter; Dawes, Les – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2013
Incorporating engineering concepts into middle school curriculum is seen as an effective way to improve students' problem-solving skills. A selection of findings is reported from a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-based unit in which students in the second year (grade 8) of a three-year longitudinal study explored…

Sun, Yan; Strobel, Johannes – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2013
Elementary engineering education (EEE) is an educational innovation. Using Rogers's innovation diffusion model, the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM), and Dreyfus's skill acquisition model as its theoretical frameworks, this study investigated elementary teachers' EEE adoption and EEE expertise development. Data of this study were collected…

Wang, Jennifer; Werner-Avidon, Maia; Newton, Lisa; Randol, Scott; Smith, Brooke; Walker, Gretchen – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2013
The Lawrence Hall of Science, a science center, seeks to replicate real-world engineering at the "Ingenuity in Action" exhibit, which consists of three open-ended challenges. These problems encourage children to engage in engineering design processes and problem-solving techniques through tinkering. We observed and interviewed 112…

Stohlmann, Micah; Moore, Tamara J.; Roehrig, Gillian H. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
Quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is vital for the future success of students. Integrated STEM education is one way to make learning more connected and relevant for students. There is a need for further research and discussion on the knowledge, experiences, and background that teachers need to effectively…

Schnittka, Christine G. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
Currently, unless a K-12 student elects to enroll in technology-focused schools or classes, exposure to engineering design and habits of mind is minimal. However, the "Framework for K-12 Science Education," published by the National Research Council in 2011, includes engineering design as a new and major component of the science content…

Marshall, Jill A.; Berland, Leema K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
We report the results of a study focused on identifying and articulating an ''epistemic foundation'' underlying a pre-collegiate focus on engineering. We do so in the context of UTeach"Engineering" (UTE), a program supported in part by funding by the National Science Foundation and designed to develop a model approach to address the…

Hutchinson, Kelly; Bodner, George M.; Lynn, Bryan – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
Research has shown that an increase in students' interest in science and engineering can have a positive effect on their achievement (Baird, 1986; Eccles & Wigfield, 2002; French, Immekus & Oakes, 2005; Schiefele, Krapp, & Winteler, 1992; Schwartz Bloom & Haplin, 2003; Weinburgh, 1995). Whereas many NSF-funded programs in materials…

Wang, Hui-Hui; Moore, Tamara J.; Roehrig, Gillian H.; Park, Mi Sun – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
To gain a better understanding of teachers' beliefs about, perceptions of, and classroom practices using STEM integration, a multi-case case study was conducted with three middle school teachers. These teachers were purposefully selected from a pool of teachers involved in a year-long professional development module on STEM integration to…

Svarovsky, Gina Navoa – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
Recently, K-12 engineering education has received increased attention as a pathway to building stronger foundations in math and science and introducing young people to the profession. However, the National Academy of Engineering found that many K-12 engineering programs focus heavily on engineering design and science and math learning while…
