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…

Verdín, Dina; Smith, Jessica M.; Lucena, Juan – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Pre-college experiences both inside and outside of the classroom inform students' interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-related activities, help them evaluate their knowledge and skills in various tasks, and shape their perceptions of themselves as individuals who can participate in STEM. Yet little empirical…

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…

Gravel, Brian E.; Tucker-Raymond, Eli; Wagh, Aditi; Klimczak, Susan; Wilson, Naeem – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Learning spaces, the practices in which people engage, and the representations they use are ideological. Ideologies are coherent constellations of values, beliefs, and practices that impose order on how disciplines like engineering operate. Historically, engineering spaces have been dominated by a relatively technocratic, rationalistic, and…

Lee, Walter C.; Knight, David B.; Cardella, Monica E. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
A central challenge in engineering education is providing experiences that are appropriate for and accessible to underserved communities. However, to provide such experiences, we must better understand the process of offering a geographically distributed asset-based out-of-school program. This paper focuses on a collaborative research project that…

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…

Jordan, Michelle E.; Zuiker, Steve; Wakefield, Wendy; DeLaRosa, Mia – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This study describes an illustrative case study from a year-round program that positions middle and high school youth to explore the social value of energy systems in their homes, schools, and neighborhoods. Designed to center existing youth assets, interests and values, Community Energy Engineering (CEE) frames engineering as a tool that students…

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…

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…

McLean, Mandy; Nation, Jasmine M.; Spina, Alexis; Susko, Tyler; Harlow, Danielle; Bianchini, Julie – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Research suggests that, to narrow the gender gap in engineering, we should focus on helping young girls identify with engineering both because gendered attitudes emerge around kindergarten and because identity is more predictive than performance on persistence in the field. This qualitative study sought to understand the impact of collaborative…

Hammack, Rebekah; Utley, Juliana; Ivey, Toni; High, Karen – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
The purpose of the current study was to determine the impacts of a multiple-day engineering-focused professional development program on elementary teachers' perceptions of the work of engineers and their use of mathematics and science. Data were collected in the form of drawings of engineers prior to and immediately after the professional…

Kye, Hannah – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Makerspaces and maker education are widely seen as means to democratize science and engineering education. A small but growing body of scholarly work warns against this assumption and calls for an explicit focus on equity in makerspaces both online and in person. With an understanding of learning as a social and cultural process, this paper…
