Marcus, Michael L.; Winters, Dixie L. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
Students from science, engineering, and technology programs should be able to work together as members of project teams to find solutions to technical problems. The exercise in this paper describes the methods actually used by a project team from a Biomedical Instrumentation Corporation in which scientists, technicians, and engineers from various…

Pinsker, Robert – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
EXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) is a non-proprietary, computer language that has many uses. Known primarily as the Extensible Markup Language (XML) for business reporting, XBRL allows entities to report their business information (i.e., financial statements, announcements, etc.) on the Internet and communicate with other entities'…

Burgess, Katherine L. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
In 1999, the Southeast Advanced Technological Education Consortium (SEATEC) held two national forums on the campus of Vanderbilt University. The first forum addressed the design of case studies for technological education. The second focused on best practices in teaching technological content through case studies (TEFATE, 1999). The second event…

Swift, Theresa M.; Watkins, Steve E. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
Student motivation for and proficiency in science and mathematics begin in the early grades. Level-appropriate resources and professional outreach activities are as beneficial for teachers and students at elementary levels as for higher levels. Engineering applications can be effective vehicles for giving students hands-on exposure to technical…

Rogers, Chris; Portsmore, Merredith – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
Incorporating engineering in the elementary school curriculum provides students with ways of connecting, applying, and reinforcing knowledge in math, science, and design. To bring what is essentially a new discipline to K-12 education means developing and supporting new tools for the classroom, additional curriculum, teacher training, and support…

Mehta, Yusuf; Najafi, Fazil – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
Flexible pavement materials exhibit complex mechanical behavior, in the sense, that they not only show stress and temperature dependency but also are sensitive to moisture conditions. This complex behavior presents a great challenge to the faculty in bringing across the level of complexity and providing the concepts needed to understand them. The…

Raju, P. K.; Sankar, Chetan S.; Cook, John A. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
The need to impart technological literacy to youth is vital for a state such as Alabama, since it has historically received relatively low levels of Federal research and development funding (EPSCOR). Thirty five counties in the state of Alabama have less than 10% of the general population with college degrees. As our society becomes more and more…

Matson, Eric; DeLoach, Scott; Pauly, Robyn – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
The "Robot Roadshow Program" is designed to increase the interest of elementary school children in technical disciplines, specifically math and science. The program focuses on children from schools categorized as rural or underserved, which often have limited access to advanced technical resources. We developed the program using robots…

Rhoads, Teri Reed; Walden, Susan E.; Winter, Brent A. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2004
Sooner Elementary Engineering and Science Clubs (SeeS) began less than four years ago at a single elementary school as an effort to bring more science education into our local elementary schools without increasing the burden on the school's teachers. Due to popular demand, the program expanded slowly at first, but is doubling to include eight…
