Moore, Tamara J.; Brophy, Sean P.; Tank, Kristina M.; Lopez, Ruben D.; Johnston, Amanda C.; Hynes, Morgan M.; Gajdzik, Elizabeth – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Computational thinking requires high cognitive load as students work to manage multiple tasks in their problem-solving environment. Through research in K-2 classrooms on computational thinking, we noticed that students lack the representational fluency needed to move from one form to another--such as moving from physical to more abstract…

Hadad, Roxana; Thomas, Kate; Kachovska, Mila; Yin, Yue – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Making activities and environments have been shown to foster the development of computational thinking (CT) skills for students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subject areas. To properly cultivate CT skills and the related dispositions, educators must understand students' needs and build awareness of how CT informs a deeper…

Pierson, Ashlyn E.; Brady, Corey E.; Clark, Douglas B. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
This paper describes the work done by sixth grade students to achieve and sustain productive and personally meaningful lines of inquiry with computational models. The capacity to frame interactions with tools as dialogic exchanges with co-participants is a productive practice for disciplinary engagement in science and for computational thinking…

Lee, Irene; Grover, Shuchi; Martin, Fred; Pillai, Sarita; Malyn-Smith, Joyce – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
This article provides an introduction for the special issue of the "Journal of Science Education and Technology" focused on computational thinking (CT) from a disciplinary perspective. The special issue connects earlier research on what K-12 students can learn and be able to do using CT with the CT skills and habits of mind needed to…

Yin, Yue; Hadad, Roxana; Tang, Xiaodan; Lin, Qiao – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Computational thinking (CT) is believed to be a critical factor to facilitate STEM learning, and a vital learning objective itself. Therefore, researchers are continuing to explore effective ways to improve and assess it. Makerspaces feature various hands-on activities, which can attract students with diverse interests from different backgrounds.…

Lytle, Ashley; Shin, Jiyun Elizabeth – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Low retention rates of undergraduate students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields are a persistent problem in the USA. Information and knowledge of STEM topics is valuable in today's modern and global society, and STEM jobs are both lucrative and in high demand. As such, engagement and retention of undergraduate students in…

Rudd, Jennifer A.; Horry, Ruth; Skains, R. Lyle – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
School students are growing up in a world with a rapidly changing climate, the effects of which will become increasingly apparent during their lifetimes. We designed and pilot tested "You and CO[subscript 2]", a STEAM program designed to encourage students to reflect on their personal impact on the environment, while also appreciating…

Falloon, Garry; Hatzigianni, Maria; Bower, Matt; Forbes, Anne; Stevenson, Michael – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
In recent years, arguments have signalled the value of STEM education for building discipline knowledge and an array of capabilities, skills and dispositions, aligned with the needs of young people functioning productively and ethically in dynamic, complex and challenging future work, social and political environments. This combination has been…

Strawhacker, Amanda; Verish, Clarissa; Shaer, Orit; Bers, Marina – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Bioengineering represents an interdisciplinary field with the potential to engage young learners in science inquiry and engineering design in the context of real-world challenges. Although children encounter bioengineered products and solutions in their everyday lives, they are not introduced to bioengineering until much later in school, after…

Quigley, Cassie F.; Herro, Dani; King, Elizabeth; Plank, Holly – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Educators are now moving classroom instructional objectives away from "what content do we need to know" towards "how can we support learners in the process of inquiry." Consequently, an increasing number of schools have revamped their curricula to support students. One such example of modified curricula is the rising trend of…
