Lane, Tonisha B.; Vomvoridi-Ivanovic, Eugenia; Cain, Leia K.; Willis, Selene; Ahmad, Salam; Gaines, Jonathan – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
The societal disruptions due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are well noted, especially in the context of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Absent a concerted effort to sustain hands-on learning opportunities in STEM amid the crisis, the consequences of COVID-19 may exacerbate existing inequities and…

Chiu, Jennifer L.; Fick, Sarah J.; McElhaney, Kevin W.; Alozie, Nonye; Fujii, Reina – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This paper addresses an important consideration for promoting equitable engineering instruction: understanding how teachers contextualize curricular materials to draw upon student and community resources. We present a descriptive case study of two 5th grade teachers who co-designed a Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)-aligned curricular unit…

Carlone, Heidi B.; Mercier, Alison K.; Metzger, Salem R. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Primary school practices are often bound by traditions that perpetuate compliance and skills-based, decontextualized, rote memorization activities. These histories of practice, prevalent in schools serving mostly Black and Brown children, make it inordinately difficult for students to author themselves as knowledge builders (i.e., with epistemic…

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…

Matusovich, Holly; Gillen, Andrew; Carrico, Cheryl; Knight, David; Grohs, Jake – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Family, school, and community contexts each link to secondary school enrollment, yet these factors have been comparatively examined only in limited ways. A holistic examination of contextual factors will be particularly important for engineering where college enrollment patterns vary by demographics. To begin explaining patterns of engineering…

Dyehouse, Melissa; Santone, Adam L.; Kisa, Zahid; Carr, Ronald L.; Razzouk, Rabieh – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
This paper describes the design principles and implementation of a novel approach for a K--12 teacher professional development (PD) program. The approach integrates training focused on development of model eliciting activities (MEAs) within authentic engineering design tasks, collaborative 3D model design and fabrication, and inspirational site…

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…
