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…

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.…

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…

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;…

Flowers, Jim; Rose, Mary Annette – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
New technologies are being developed every day. Many of these may not make it into the curriculum for technology and engineering students. For those that do, there may be quite a delay between the time the technology is introduced at an industrial scale and when the technology is developed at a relatively low cost and small scale needed to…

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…

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; Strimel, Greg; Byrd, Vetria; Santana, Vanessa; Otto, Jackson; Laureano, Zach; DeRome, Brian – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
By exposing students to the concept of digital agriculture earlier in their lives, they will be able to develop the proper mindset to advance the field further when they enter the professional world. Engaging students in activities such as the one described here, which center on the Grand Engineering Challenges and socially relevant contexts, may…

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,…

Corkins, Chelsea; Cerv, Sara – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
While some might argue that lessons such as this cater towards nonformal education, teachers should not be deterred from integrating these lessons into their formal classrooms. Nonformal lesson plans--including their structures and techniques--can and should be integrated into formal classroom settings. Many nonformal activities are easy to…
