Chiu, Jennifer L.; Linn, M. C. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
Recent efforts in engineering education focus on introducing engineering into secondary math and science courses to improve science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education (NAS, 2010). Infusing engineering into secondary classrooms can increase awareness of and interest in STEM careers, help students see the relevance of science and…

Narode, Ronald B. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
Using an apparently simple problem, ''Design a cylindrical can that will hold a liter of milk,'' this paper demonstrates how engineering design may facilitate the teaching of the following ideas to secondary students: linear and non-linear relationships; basic geometry of circles, rectangles, and cylinders; unit measures of area and volume;…

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…

Hsu, Ming-Chien; Purzer, Senay; Cardella, Monica E. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
While there is a growing interest in infusing engineering into elementary classrooms, very little is known about how well positioned elementary teachers are to teach engineering. This study examined elementary teachers' perceptions of and familiarity with design,engineering, and technology (DET). We collected data from 192 elementary teachers…

Weber, Nicole; Duncan, Daphne; Dyehouse, Melissa; Strobel, Johannes; Diefes-Dux, Heidi A. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
The Draw an Engineer Test (DAET) is a common measure of students' perceptions of engineers. The coding systems currently used for K-12 research are general rubrics or checklists to capture the images presented in the drawing, which leave out some of the richness of students' perceptions, currently only captured with an accompanying student…

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…

Chandler, John; Fontenot, A. Dean; Tate, Derrick – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
This article identifies a number of issues associated with current STEM education reform efforts, especially with regard to efforts to integrate engineering education into the K-12 curriculum. Precollege engineering is especially problematic in STEM reform since there is no well-established tradition of engineering in the K-12 curriculum. This…

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…
