Mathis, Corey A.; Siverling, Emilie A.; Glancy, Aran W.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
One of the fundamental practices identified in Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is argumentation, which has been researched in P-12 science education for the previous two decades but has yet to be studied within the context of P-12 engineering education. This research explores how elementary and middle school science teachers incorporated…

Singer, Jonathan E.; Ross, Julia M.; Jackson-Lee, Yvette – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2016
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education in the U.S. is in transition. The recently published "A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas" as well as the "Next Generation Science Standards" are responsive to this call and clearly articulate a vision that…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Moore, Tamara J.; Harwell, Michael – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2016
Improving K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education has a priority on numerous education reforms in the United States. To that end, developing and sustaining quality programs that focus on integrated STEM education is critical for educators. Successful implementation of any STEM program is related to the curriculum…

Valtorta, Clara G.; Berland, Leema K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2015
Engineering in K-12 classrooms has been receiving expanding emphasis in the United States. The integration of science, mathematics, and engineering is a benefit and goal of K-12 engineering; however, current empirical research on the efficacy of K-12 science, mathematics, and engineering integration is limited. This study adds to this growing…

Dare, Emily A.; Ellis, Joshua A.; Roehrig, Gillian H. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2014
It is difficult to ignore the increased use of technological innovations in today's world, which has led to various calls for the integration of engineering into K-12 science standards. The need to understand how engineering is currently being brought to science classrooms is apparent and necessary in order to address these calls for integration.…

Berland, Leema K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2013
We are increasingly seeing an emphasis on STEM integration in high school classrooms such that students will learn and apply relevant math and science content while simultaneously developing engineering habits of mind. However, research in both science education and engineering education suggests that this goal of truly integrating STEM is rife…
