Marshall, Jill A.; Berland, Leema K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
We report the results of a study focused on identifying and articulating an ''epistemic foundation'' underlying a pre-collegiate focus on engineering. We do so in the context of UTeach"Engineering" (UTE), a program supported in part by funding by the National Science Foundation and designed to develop a model approach to address the…
