Prasa, Anthony R., Jr.; Del Guercio, Ryan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Engineers are faced with solving important problems every day and must follow a step-by-step design process to arrive at solutions. Students who are taught an effective design process to apply to engineering projects begin to see problems as an engineer would, consider all ideas, and arrive at the best solution. Using an effective design process…

Caccavale, Frank – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Any parent, teacher, or coach who works with students today will admit there is a lot of competition for a student's time and attention. After school dismisses, video games, homework, sports, extracurricular activities, and more occupy students' time. It is equally as challenging to compete for their attention during the school day. New electives…

Johns, Gary; Mentzer, Nathan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Teachers can find opportunities to incorporate design thinking and scientific inquiry within any lesson where a constraint of the design can be connected to a scientific experiment. Within a lesson, this connection establishes context between engineering and science and can positively impact students' learning and interest in these subjects. The…

Bartholomew, Scott – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is a buzzword in America (Ames, 2013; Woodruff, 2013). With recent pushes from the federal government (Obama, 2013) the educational landscape is changing, with an increased emphasis on STEM (Noddings, 2013; Obama, 2013). However, a clear definition of who teaches each aspect of STEM does not exist…

Love, Tyler S. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
Before giving students permission to construct and test their designs, students must understand how to use hazardous tools, machines, and chemicals in a safe manner. Students often complain that they have already seen the safety videos and passed the same safety tests in prerequisite Integrative STEM Education (I-STEM Ed) courses. Although they…

Debs, Luciana; Kelley, Todd – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
Teaching design to middle and high school students can be challenging. One of the first procedures in teaching design is to help students gather information that will be useful in the design phase. An early stage of engineering design as described by Lewis (2005), calls for the designer to establish the state of the art of the problem. During this…
