Corkins, Chelsea; Cerv, Sara – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
While some might argue that lessons such as this cater towards nonformal education, teachers should not be deterred from integrating these lessons into their formal classrooms. Nonformal lesson plans--including their structures and techniques--can and should be integrated into formal classroom settings. Many nonformal activities are easy to…

Lazaros, Edward; Embree, Caleb – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Biotechnology is an innovative field that is consistently growing in popularity. It is important that students are taught about this technology at an early age, so they are motivated to join the field, or at least motivated to become informed citizens and consumers (Gonzalez, et al, 2013). An increase in biotechnology knowledge can result in an…

Ritz, John M. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Radar is a technology that can be used to detect distant objects not visible to the human eye. A predecessor of radar, called the telemobiloscope, was first used to detect ships in the fog in 1904 off the German coast. Many scientists have worked on the development and refinement of radar (Hertz with electromagnetic waves; Popov with determining…

Prasa, Anthony R., Jr.; Del Guercio, Ryan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Engineers are faced with solving important problems every day and must follow a step-by-step design process to arrive at solutions. Students who are taught an effective design process to apply to engineering projects begin to see problems as an engineer would, consider all ideas, and arrive at the best solution. Using an effective design process…

Deck, Anita; Grubbs, Michael E. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
It is becoming increasingly important to consider the waste humans produce and options for reducing the impact it has on the environment. Allowing students the opportunities to research potential solutions and present their ideas results in an educated citizenry that considers consequences of technological advances. Throughout the course of a…

Preble, Brian C. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
The manipulation of the natural world in the form of plant materials to design, control, and grow desirable agricultural commodities was central to the establishment and advancement of civilization. Modern developments in genetically modified organisms (GMOs or biologically engineered foods) can trace their origins to macro practices developed and…

Reeve, Edward M. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is a term seen almost daily in the news. In 2009, President Obama launched the Educate to Innovate initiative to move American students from the middle to the top of the pack in science and math achievement over the next decade (The White House, n.d.). Learning about the attributes of STEM…
