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…

Schilling, Malle; Pinnell, Margaret – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2019
In the present day, it is not uncommon for there to be a class full of engineering students with very few women among them. To combat this lack of gender diversity, colleges and universities have employed outreach programs and developed summer engagement opportunities that allow women to explore engineering before they graduate high school. The…
