Waterman, Kevin P.; Goldsmith, Lynn; Pasquale, Marian – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Using an example of a grade 3 science unit about population changes during competition for resources, we describe how we integrated computational thinking (CT) into existing curriculum identifying three levels of depth of integration: identifying connections that already exist, enhancing and strengthening connections, and extending units to…

Lee, Irene; Malyn-Smith, Joyce – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
This paper describes analyses of the K-12 computational thinking (CT) integration activities collected at two NSF-funded workshops, "Developing an Interdisciplinary Framework for Integrating Computational Thinking in K-12 Science, Mathematics, Technology, and Engineering Education," held in August and November of 2017 at Education…

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…

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…

Zhao, Yong – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This paper is a caution to the overemphasis on STEM in schools. Human talents and interests are extremely diverse for all sorts of reasons (nature via nurture). However, not all talents and skills have equal utility value in all societies. Thus, societies tend to suppress some and support others (via education or social policies). STEM represents…

Finkel, Liza – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Despite decades of efforts to increase the participation of women and people from underrepresented minority groups (URM) in science and math majors and careers, and despite the increasing diversification of the US population as a whole (Planty et al. in National Center for Education Statistics, Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of…

Egbue, Ona; Long, Suzanna; Ng, Ean-Harn – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2015
Despite attempts to generate interest in science and technology careers, US students continue to show reduced interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors at the collegiate level. If girls are not engaged in STEM learning by the middle school level, studies show that they are even less likely to choose a science- or…

Wilson, Zakiya S.; Holmes, Lakenya; deGravelles, Karin; Sylvain, Monica R.; Batiste, Lisa; Johnson, Misty; McGuire, Saundra Y.; Pang, Su Seng; Warner, Isiah M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2012
In the United States, less than half of the students who enter into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) undergraduate curricula as freshmen will actually graduate with a STEM degree. There is even greater disparity in the national STEM graduation rates of students from underrepresented groups with approximately three-fourths…
