Pidaparti, Ramana M.; Graceraj, Prabaharan P.; Nagel, Jacquelyn K. S.; Rose, Christopher Stewart – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2020
Undergraduate engineering education must train students to not only solve design challenges that transcend disciplinary boundaries, but also communicate, transfer knowledge, and collaborate across technical and non-technical boundaries. One approach to achieving this goal is teaching bio-inspired design (BID) in an engineering curriculum. In…

Peterson, Bryanne – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2020
Watson and McMahon's (2005) work identified a need for research to examine the what and how of children's career development learning; this research is a start to answering that call, specifically focusing on STEM career interest as a precursor to development due to the current needs nationally for an increase in the STEM pipeline. This study…

Boylan-Ashraf, Peggy C. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2020
Introductory fundamental engineering mechanics (IFEM) courses, such as statics, mechanics of materials, dynamics, and fluids are based primarily on physics and mathematical concepts. In this paper, we suggest that new methodologies and active learning pedagogies, must be included in IFEM classrooms. This study focuses on a new paradigm in IFEM…
