Strimel, Greg J.; Kim, Eunhye; Bosman, Lisa – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2019
Competitive growth in today's economy requires engineers to possess innovation skills to create novel designs. An entrepreneurial mindset enables people to think and then act in a certain way to discover, evaluate, and exploit opportunities by understanding the value proposition of a new idea, identifying the potential market, and adapting ideas…

Kramer, Barbara; Walston, Timothy – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2019
An integrative introduction to the sciences and an introduction to scientific writing can provide a strong foundation for broadly trained STEM majors to explore the interconnectedness of STEM disciplines and prepare them for scientific research. These goals have been accomplished through a sequence of two first-year courses, STEM 101: Integrative…

Pierszalowski, Sophie; Vue, Rican; Bouwma-Gearhart, Jana – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
Considerable work is still required to eliminate disparities in postsecondary STEM persistence and success across student groups. Engagement in faculty-mentored research has been employed as one strategy to promote personal, professional, and academic gains for undergraduate students, although barriers exist that make it more difficult for some to…

Windsor, Alistair; Ivey, Stephanie – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
Increasing persistence and graduation of post-secondary STEM students is a topic of significant focus and research, as are strategies for identifying barriers to success and intervening to bridge related gaps. In the case of underrepresented students, there are many challenges that may impact persistence in STEM majors, many of which, while…

Lisberg, Anneke; Woods, Brett – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
Nearly one half of students planning to earn a STEM degree either change majors or leave college without a degree. The completion percentage is much lower for underrepresented minorities, of whom less than one third complete their STEM degree within six years. At the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the STEM Boot Camp program was designed to…

Gupta, Anju; Hill, Nicole; Valenzuela, Patricia; Johnson, Eric – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Recruiting students in STEM majors to fill the gap in STEM workforce is a continued challenge, which can be addressed by introducing scientific principles through hand-on activities to the students at an early stage. This paper presents the design, implementation and assessment of a chemistry-related workshop for sixth grade students that were…

Chou, Karen C.; Moaveni, Saeed; Sapp, James D. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
The integrity of a structural system depends on the strength of materials, shape of the individual member and the elements used to hold the members together. In most undergraduate civil engineering curricula, a structural steel and/or reinforced concrete design course is required. Usually, the main focus of these courses is on member selection…

Ilumoka, Abby; Milanovic, Ivana; Grant, Natalie – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
This article reflects upon an investigative study of the powerful impact that mentoring partnerships have on pre-college students and young engineering professionals in Hartford, CT. It was found that these partnerships can provide very strong foundations for a diverse pre-college student engineering pipeline that includes significant numbers of…

Kittur, H.; Shaw, L.; Herrera, W. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
The High School Summer Research Program (HSSRP) is a rigorous eight-week research experience that challenges high school students to a novel scientific question in an engineering laboratory at the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science (HSSEAS) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The program collates highly…

Yelamarthi, Kumar – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2016
Many interesting research and design questions occur at the intersections of traditional disciplines, yet most coursework and research programs for undergraduate engineering students are focused on one discipline. This leads to underutilization of the potential in better preparing students through multidisciplinary projects. Identifying this…

Moaveni, Saeed; Chou, Karen C. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2015
Steel connections play important roles in the integrity of a structure, and many structural failures are attributed to connection failures. Connections are the glue that holds a structure together. The failures of the Hartford Coliseum in 1977, the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kansas City in 1980, and the I-35W Bridge in Minneapolis in 2007 are all…
