Warner, Scott A.; Shearer, Korbin L.; Heidt, Garreth; Shoemaker, Korbin – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
For as long as the profession of technology and engineering education (TEE) has existed (the addition of engineering to the professional title marks the official beginning of the profession, and that occurred in 2010), there has been a struggle. Arguably, this struggle's roots go back to the beginning of public education in the U.S. The struggle,…

Grannetino, Joshua – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
Creating a community rather than an institution is a goal that all educators should strive to meet. To do this, school districts try to unify their student bodies by bringing attention to an obstacle too many children face--bullying. In the Technology and Education (TE) classroom, topics involving bullying can be difficult to include in everyday…

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…

Hipple, Britton – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
Clean energy is a topic of increasing political and cultural significance in the age of climate change, and as such can be an interesting topic with which to engage students. One avenue to produce large quantities of power is through harnessing nuclear reactions; however, the social stigma and fear of expanding nuclear power have placed several…

Garlick, Jared; Wilson-Lopez, Amy – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
In light of linguistic diversity within many U.S. classrooms, it has become paramount that technology and engineering teachers provide accessible yet rigorous instruction that supports students' language development. One of the best ways to support emergent bilingual students is to provide rich and robust vocabulary instruction in English, while…

Voss, Sarah; Klinker, Hannah; Kruse, Jerrid – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
It is becoming increasingly important for students to go beyond engaging in design by reflecting upon the nature of engineering (NOE) and wrestling with questions such as, "What do engineers do?" and "What is engineering?" This article describes an activity in which middle school students are asked to create a product to help a…

Kelley, Todd R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
Teaching students the design process and providing opportunities for design is at the core of engineering/technology education. The design process is a key feature of technological literacy, and design is the most represented element within "Standards for Technological Literacy" (ITEA/ITEEA 2000, 2002/2007; Lewis, 2005; Wicklein, 2006).…

Bartholomew, Scott; Goodridge, Wade; Shaheen, Natalie – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
In 2002 the World Health Organization (WHO) analyzed available data on Blindness and Low Vision (BLV) from 55 countries and applied it to the 17 WHO epidemiological subregions. Results indicate approximately 37 million people are blind and 124 million have low vision (Foster & Resnikoff, 2005). Providing opportunities for these students to…

Flowers, Jim; Wierzbicki, Alexander; Weldy, Alexandra – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
The use of CO[subscript 2] laser cutters/engravers in technology and engineering education "allows even beginning students to produce professional parts in a very short time [and] empowers and motivates students, helping to bring out their creativity" (Flowers, 2000, p. 11). They are fast, accurate, fun to use, and they facilitate…
