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…

Loveland, Thomas; Love, Tyler S.; Wilkerson, Trena; Simmons, Patricia – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
In 1981, twenty-one industrial arts educators convened at Jackson's Mill, WV to develop an agreed-upon rationale and direction for the future of industrial arts. However, the route to achieve this goal was not as clear, as they had to "live the challenge of inquiry, assimilation, compromise, and consensus" (Snyder & Hales, 1981, p.…

Walsh, Thomas; Wright, Geoffrey A. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
High school Technology and Engineering (TE) classes are, in the majority, comprised of male students (USDE, 2012). This data point is also true in middle and junior high school elective TE classes. In light of the rapid growth of technology and engineering career opportunities, the lack of women students enrolling in middle, junior high, and high…

Tyler S. Love; Ken R. Roy – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
The excitement of summer break arriving may have best been described by country music artist Kenny Chesney in his hit song Summertime, "…just like a long-lost friend you ain't seen in a while, you can't help but smile" (Wiseman & McEwan, 2006). For educators and students alike, this is a much-needed vacation to help reinvigorate…
