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…

Gale, Jessica – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
Extant research and engineering education frameworks call for students to engage in personally meaningful engineering projects; however, there are few case studies documenting the work of young engineers working to design solutions to real-world problems that matter to them. This qualitative case study describes the work of a purposively selected…

Wilson-Lopez, Amy; Acosta-Feliz, Jorge – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
Multilingual students should have opportunities to learn and do engineering in learning environments that foreground and sustain their cultural and linguistic practices. However, little is known about how middle school engineering teachers enact these environments. To address this gap in research and practice, this comparative case study describes…

Cunningham, Christine M.; Kelly, Gregory J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
In this paper, we address the societally important issue of developing a more equitable approach to preK-12 engineering education. Our primary emphasis is on K-8 grades--a time when first impressions of engineering may be developed. Calls for increased participation by all students, including those who have been historically marginalized, motivate…

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…

Kidd, Jennifer; Kaipa, Krishnanand; Gutierrez, Kristie; Lee, Min Jung; Pazos, Pilar; Ringleb, Stacie I. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
Ed+gineering, an NSF-funded program, adapted hands-on robotics instruction for online delivery in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This qualitative multiple case study shares the experiences of participating education students in spring 2021 as they collaborated virtually with engineering students and fifth graders to engineer bioinspired robots…

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…

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…

Lottero-Perdue, Pamela S.; Settlage, John – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
The broad case being made in this paper is that recognizing student assets--rather than focusing on deficits--is essential for making engineering education more equitable. The paper begins with our exploration of an epistemic practice of engineering, ''making tradeoffs,'' as enacted by kindergartners after experiencing design failure and during…

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…

Nixon, Jessie; Stoiber, Andy; Halverson, Erica; Dando, Michael – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
In this article, we describe efforts to reduce barriers of entry to pre-college engineering in a rural community by training local teens to become maker-mentors and staff a mobile makerspace in their community. We bring a communities of practice frame to our inquiry, focusing on inbound and peripheral learning and identity trajectories as a…

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…

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…

Porter, Teresa; West, Meg E.; Kajfez, Rachel L.; Malone, Kathy L.; Irving, Karen E. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
Increased attention on the implementation of engineering education into elementary school classrooms aims to start preparing students early for potential engineering careers. In order to efficiently and effectively add engineering concepts to the curriculum, appropriate development and facilitation of engineering design challenges are required.…
