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…

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…

Kwon, Hyunkyung – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Researchers found that student-centered, technology-integrated learning environments help to produce students who are better able to think critically, solve problems, collaborate with others, and engage deeply in the learning process. Understanding the impact of technology and finding the best ways to integrate technology into the classroom is…

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…

Chou, Karen C.; Moaveni, Saeed; Drane, Denise – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2016
A Virtual Steel Connection Sculpture was developed through a grant from the National Science Foundation. The Virtual Sculpture is an interactive tool that shows students and anyone interested in connections how steel members are connected. This tool is created to complement students' steel design courses. The features of this educational tool,…

Cox, Charles; Reynolds, Birdy; Schunn, Christian; Schuchardt, Anita – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2016
There are strong classroom ties between mathematics and the sciences of physics and chemistry, but those ties seem weaker between mathematics and biology. Practicing biologists realize both that there are interesting mathematics problems in biology, and that viewing classroom biology in the context of another discipline could support students'…

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…

Huang, Shaobo; Mejia, Joel Alejandro; Becker, Kurt; Neilson, Drew – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2015
Improving high school physics teaching and learning is important to the long-term success of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Efforts are currently in place to develop an understanding of science among high school students through formal and informal educational experiences in engineering design activities…

Lehman, James D.; Kim, WooRi; Harris, Constance – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2014
The new standards for K-12 science education in the United States call for science teachers to integrate engineering concepts and practices within their science teaching in order to improve student learning. To accomplish this, teachers need appropriate instructional materials as well as the knowledge and skills to effectively use them. This mixed…

Pinnell, Margaret; Rowly, James; Preiss, Sandi; Franco, Suzanne; Blust, Rebecca; Beach, Renee – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2013
This paper will describe a unique partnership among the Department of Teacher Education and School of Engineering at the University of Dayton (UD) and the Dayton Regional STEM Center (DRSC). This partnership resulted in the development of the STEM Education Quality Framework (SQF), a tool to guide educators in teaching, learning and refining STEM…

Lawanto, Oenardi; Butler, Deborah; Cartier, Sylvie C.; Santoso, Harry B.; Goodridge, Wade; Lawanto, Kevin N.; Clark, David – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2013
The objective of this exploratory study was to describe patterns in self-regulated learning (SRL) for both high school students and college freshmen while engaged in a design activity. The main research question guiding this study was: How did high school and first-year college students self-regulate their approaches to learning when engaged in an…

Birnie, Dunbar P., III; Kaz, David M.; Berman, Elena A. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2012
A solar power collector optimization design project has been developed for use in undergraduate classrooms and/or laboratories. The design optimization depends on understanding the current-voltage characteristics of the starting photovoltaic cells as well as how the cell's electrical response changes with increased light illumination. Students…

Lackey, Ellen – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2011
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the implementation of an industrial-based case study as the basis for a design project for the Spring 2009 Introduction to Mechanical Design Course at the University of Mississippi. Course surveys documented the lack of student exposure in classes to the types of projects typically experienced by engineers…

Chou, Karen C.; Moaveni, Saeed – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2009
In almost all the civil engineering programs in the United States, a student is required to take at least one design course in either steel or reinforced concrete. One of the topics covered in an introductory steel design course is the design of connections. Steel connections play important roles in the integrity of a structure, and many…

Diefes-Dux, Heidi A.; Hjalmarson, Margret; Zawojewski, Judith S.; Bowman, Keith – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2006
Model-eliciting activities (MEA), specially designed client-drive, open-ended problems, have been implemented in a first-year engineering course and in secondary schools. The educational goals and settings are different, but the design of an MEA enables it to be versatile. This paper will introduce the reader to the principles that guide MEA…
