Verdín, Dina; Godwin, Allison; Ross, Monique – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2018
Educational researchers have explored the importance of performance, recognition, and interest in establishing and maintaining a STEM identity. Research has also demonstrated that the ways students describe themselves and how they participate in STEM communities can provide insight into their role identity salience; however, there has been little…

Glancy, Aran W.; Moore, Tamara J.; Guzey, Selcen; Smith, Karl A. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
An understanding of statistics and skills in data analysis are becoming more and more essential, yet research consistently shows that students struggle with these concepts at all levels. This case study documents some of the struggles four groups of fifth-grade students encounter as they collect, organize, and interpret data and then ultimately…

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…

Sengupta-Irving, Tesha; Mercado, Janet – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
While integrating engineering into science education is not new in the United States, technology and engineering have not been well emphasized in the preparation and professional development of science teachers. Recent science education reforms integrate science and engineering throughout K-12 education, making it imperative to explore the…

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…

Reimers, Jackson E.; Farmer, Cheryl L.; Klein-Gardner, Stacy S. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2015
The past 30 years have yielded a mature body of research regarding effective professional development for teachers of science and mathematics, leading to a robust selection of professional development programs for these teachers. The current emphasis on connections among science, technology, engineering, and mathematics underscores the need for…

Van Haneghan, James P.; Pruet, Susan A.; Neal-Waltman, Rhonda; Harlan, Jessica M. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2015
The present study examines middle school teachers' beliefs about seven learning outcomes related to a project that involves developing and examining the effects of a set of engineering design modules constructed for use by middle school math and science teachers. Overall, the teachers involved in the intervention appear to believe they have the…

Martin, Taylor; Peacock, Stephanie Baker; Ko, Pat; Rudolph, Jennifer J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2015
Although the consensus seems to be that high-school-level introductory engineering courses should focus on design, this creates a problem for teacher training. Traditionally, math and science teachers are trained to teach and assess factual knowledge and closed-ended problem-solving techniques specific to a particular discipline, which is unsuited…

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.…

Donna, Joel D. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
Engineering design activities can help educators to apply concepts and processes from within and across STEM domains. To facilitate these connections, there is a need for sustained, job-embedded, and collegial professional development that brings together teachers from across STEM domains to engage in design-based activities. These activities can…

Schnittka, Christine G. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
Currently, unless a K-12 student elects to enroll in technology-focused schools or classes, exposure to engineering design and habits of mind is minimal. However, the "Framework for K-12 Science Education," published by the National Research Council in 2011, includes engineering design as a new and major component of the science content…

Wang, Hui-Hui; Moore, Tamara J.; Roehrig, Gillian H.; Park, Mi Sun – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2011
To gain a better understanding of teachers' beliefs about, perceptions of, and classroom practices using STEM integration, a multi-case case study was conducted with three middle school teachers. These teachers were purposefully selected from a pool of teachers involved in a year-long professional development module on STEM integration to…
