Chiu, Jennifer L.; Fick, Sarah J.; McElhaney, Kevin W.; Alozie, Nonye; Fujii, Reina – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This paper addresses an important consideration for promoting equitable engineering instruction: understanding how teachers contextualize curricular materials to draw upon student and community resources. We present a descriptive case study of two 5th grade teachers who co-designed a Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)-aligned curricular unit…

Spruill, Nyissia Charmaine; Hennessy Elliott, Colin; Della Volpe, Daniela; Alcantara, Keidy – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This paper examines video data of a high school robotics team to explore practices that empower youth from underrepresented groups in engineering to disrupt traditional boundaries around what engineering is and who is considered competent to participate in its practice. We analyze in-the-moment positioning work with a focus on care and maintenance…

Holly, James, Jr. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Engineering educators must consider how the cultural backgrounds of students coincide (or diverge) with the epistemological and ontological formation of an engineer. Hence, this work is presented as an exhortation to engineering educators, particularly in a precollege context, to critically evaluate how race-conscious pedagogies can be exerted in…

Wright, Christopher G.; Likely, Rasheda; Wendell, Kristen B.; Paugh, Patricia P.; Smith, Elizabeth – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Professional learning communities are typically conceived of as spaces for reducing teacher isolation, supporting informed and committed teachers, and fostering student academic gains. Focusing on a professional learning community that supported the teaching and learning of engineering in elementary schools, we also conceived of this learning…

Strimel, Greg; Huffman, Tanner; Grubbs, Michael; Kim, Eunhye; Gurganus, Jamie – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Engineering education has increasingly become an area of interest at the P-12 level, yet attempts to align engineering knowledge, skills, and habits to existing elementary and secondary educational programming have been parochial in nature (e.g., for a specific context, grade, or initiative). Consequently, a need exists to establish a coherent…

Ehsan, Hoda; Cardella, Monica E. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
In the last two decades, pre-college engineering education has increased, with research on pre-college engineering education emerging as a nascent field. However, limited research, if any, has considered aspects of engineering thinking of children with neurodiversity. In line with calls for broadening participation in engineering education,…

Matusovich, Holly; Gillen, Andrew; Carrico, Cheryl; Knight, David; Grohs, Jake – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Family, school, and community contexts each link to secondary school enrollment, yet these factors have been comparatively examined only in limited ways. A holistic examination of contextual factors will be particularly important for engineering where college enrollment patterns vary by demographics. To begin explaining patterns of engineering…

McLean, Mandy; Nation, Jasmine M.; Spina, Alexis; Susko, Tyler; Harlow, Danielle; Bianchini, Julie – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Research suggests that, to narrow the gender gap in engineering, we should focus on helping young girls identify with engineering both because gendered attitudes emerge around kindergarten and because identity is more predictive than performance on persistence in the field. This qualitative study sought to understand the impact of collaborative…

Hammack, Rebekah; Utley, Juliana; Ivey, Toni; High, Karen – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
The purpose of the current study was to determine the impacts of a multiple-day engineering-focused professional development program on elementary teachers' perceptions of the work of engineers and their use of mathematics and science. Data were collected in the form of drawings of engineers prior to and immediately after the professional…

Kye, Hannah – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Makerspaces and maker education are widely seen as means to democratize science and engineering education. A small but growing body of scholarly work warns against this assumption and calls for an explicit focus on equity in makerspaces both online and in person. With an understanding of learning as a social and cultural process, this paper…

Harlan, Jessica; Van Haneghan, James – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
As part of a longitudinal study of the development and implementation of a middle school engineering design curriculum, we have used an occupational values subscale of the Assessing Men and Women in Engineering (AWE) project's Engineering version of the Core Survey for Middle School-Aged Participants to measure student occupational interest in…

Burack, Cathy; Melchoir, Alan; Hoover, Matthew – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
One result of the growing concerns over the numbers of young people moving into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-related careers has been the expansion of formal and informal STEM education programming for pre-college youth, from elementary school through high school. While the number of programs has grown rapidly, there is…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
To effectively incorporate engineering into their instruction, K-12 teachers need sufficient knowledge of the engineering discipline. An important component of teachers' engineering knowledge is their understanding of the nature of engineering: what engineers do, the epistemological underpinnings of engineering, and the relationships between…

Anwar, Saira; Bascou, Nicholas Alexander; Meneske, Muhsin; Kardgar, Asefeh – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
There has been a steady increase in the number of studies investigating educational robotics and its impact on academic and social skills of young learners. Educational robots are used both in and out of school environments to enhance K-12 students' interest, engagement, and academic achievement in various fields of STEM education. Some prior…

Utley, Juliana; Ivey, Toni; Weaver, John; Self, Mary Jo – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
A key goal of pre-college engineering programs is to increase the number and retention of students pursuing engineering degrees. The researchers conducted a transcript analysis in order to compare the retention of entering engineering majors at a university based on whether or not they participated in Project Lead the Way (PLTW) in high school.…
