Tomlinson, Joel; Johnson, Etahe; Chesser, Cole; Moore, Jonathan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
The automated water filtration design challenge integrates computer programming and basic electronics concepts through the SIMILAR systems engineering design process. The SIMILAR systems design process is to state the problem, investigate alternatives, model the system, integrate the system, launch the system, assess performance, and reevaluate…

Hughes, Andrew J.; Merrill, Chris – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
The focus of this article is to serve as an introduction to engineering principles in beam design using a lab activity. The concepts and skills learned in this article will lead students into concrete beam and form design and fabrication as well as the ability to precisely predict the amount of weight a concrete beam will hold during testing. An…

Hughes, Andrew J.; Merrill, Chris – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
Design is often accepted as a fundamental aspect of engineering (Dym, et al., 2005). The design process is frequently portrayed as a set of steps. However, the design process is more complex than just a set of steps in a relatively fixed process. The complex nature of design, design thinking, questioning, and decision making is exactly what…

Jackson, Andrew; Mentzer, Nathan; Kramer-Bottiglio, Rebecca – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
In the field of technology and engineering education, educators are limited by their inability to predict what is coming; as the saying goes, they are preparing their students for jobs that do not even exist yet. Two adaptive approaches can help prepare students for this uncertainty: (1) teaching broad skills that can be applied in new situations;…

Waldrop, Angela; Corey, Caitlyn; Halfacre, Matthew; Hummell, Laura; Krantz, Dale; Gurganus, Jamie; Strimel, Greg J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
This article showcases a lesson that employs a culturally situated design context to intentionally teach students about the engineering concepts involved in material selection and the application of dynamics. Students use their classroom time to work in groups addressing the issue of how to design athletic helmets to account for cultural attire,…

Hutton, Carrie – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
It is no secret that particular populations of Americans, specifically minorities, women, and students from high-poverty schools and districts, are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) jobs (Presidents' Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, 2010). In the 21st century, technology drives innovation…

Weidman, Justin; Wright, Geoffrey – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Construction Education has been dwindling in K-12 classrooms for the past 20 years (Frazier, 2015; Chini, 1999; Jones, 1990). This has led to enrollment issues and professional shortages in the construction industry (Bigelow, 2015). Couple these facts with the call for STEM majors (Painter, 2012), and there is a noteworthy opportunity: combine…

Tan, Verily; Nicholas, Celeste; Scribner, J. Adam; Francis, Dionne Cross – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
With the introduction of "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS"), teachers have been called to find meaningful and engaging ways to teach science content while incorporating engineering practices and, to a lesser extent, computing and computational thinking. The task becomes even more complex when they also have to…

Gill, Melvin; Koperski, Kevin; Love, Tyler S.; Roy, Ken R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
At the start of each academic year, it is critical that school systems have developed a plan regarding how safety is to be enforced within their Technology and Engineering (T&E) education departments. This plan should focus on a uniform way to approach safety across all T&E courses and help reduce the liability of the school district,…

Fisher, Karin – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
According to the new federal spending bill signed into law in March 2018, funding is being provided for education programs and initiatives in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Many provisions allow for funding to support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education that includes diverse learners in activities such as…

Love, Tyler S.; Tomlinson, Joel – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Soldering is a useful and necessary process for many classroom, makerspace, Fab Lab, technology and engineering lab, and science lab activities. As described in this article, soldering can pose many safety risks without proper engineering controls, standard operating procedures, and direct instructor supervision. There are many safety hazards…

Lipscomb, Kevin; Nato, Sandy; Ernst, Jeremy; Clark, Aaron; DeLuca, V. William; Kelly, Daniel – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
When students walk into a classroom, often the first question is, "What are we going to do today?" It is easy for educators to fall into the trap of using activities exclusively without considering the value or intent of the content. After all, the students are engaged, and if they are busy they must be learning. Simply being busy,…

Blue, Carl; Clark, Aaron; DeLuca, V. William; Kelly, Daniel – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
The changing demographics of U.S. society have prompted a focus on multiculturalism in today's classrooms. Educators and students are expected to be aware of the individual differences and characteristics that exist and use these attributes to everyone's advantage. This awareness begins with developing a broad understanding of the diverse…

Welling, Jonathan; Wright, Geoffrey A. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
The paper rocket activity described in this article effectively teaches the engineering design process (EDP) by engaging students in a problem-based learning activity that encourages iterative design. For example, the first rockets the students build typically only fly between 30 and 100 feet. As students test and evaluate their rocket designs,…
