Love, Tyler S. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
The United Kingdom (U.K.) offers excellent safety policies and resources from which Technology and Engineering (T&E) educators across the world could benefit. In the U.K., Design and Technology (D&T) is taught in most primary (elementary) and secondary schools. D&T has origins related to crafts and domestic skills; however, D&T now…

Sung, Euisuk – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Computational thinking has been popularized in the last decade, particularly with the emphasis on coding education in K-12 schools. The core idea of computational thinking has a close relationship with technology and engineering education (TEE). TEE has emphasized the use of computing skills to solve problems, and integrative STEM education…

Waldrop, Angela; Corey, Caitlyn; Halfacre, Matthew; Hummell, Laura; Krantz, Dale; Gurganus, Jamie; Strimel, Greg J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
This article showcases a lesson that employs a culturally situated design context to intentionally teach students about the engineering concepts involved in material selection and the application of dynamics. Students use their classroom time to work in groups addressing the issue of how to design athletic helmets to account for cultural attire,…

Hardy, Alison – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Design and technology (D&T) is taught in most primary (5-11 year old children) and secondary schools (11-16 year olds) in England. Seen by some as a relatively new subject (White, 2011), some of its origins lie in craft tradition and domestic skills. This is partly reflected in classroom activities where children design and make, usually in…

Hartell, Eva – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), adopted by the United Nations in 2003, is one example where safety has served as a universal language. GHS has helped countries provide uniform chemical labels and safety data sheets (SDS). It also provided a series of chemical hazard pictograms that are now…

Bartholomew, Scott R.; Zhang, Liwei – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Although there are over 320,000 health and fitness apps available on major app stores, there is scant evidence that they actually promote a healthier lifestyle, assist users in exercising, or promote weight loss. This article presents a lesson plan using an Arduino for integrating computational thinking and game design with middle school students…

Tan, Verily; Nicholas, Celeste; Scribner, J. Adam; Francis, Dionne Cross – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
With the introduction of "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS"), teachers have been called to find meaningful and engaging ways to teach science content while incorporating engineering practices and, to a lesser extent, computing and computational thinking. The task becomes even more complex when they also have to…

Haney, Casey Lynn; Bartholomew, Scott; Hauck, Morgan; Price, Alexandria – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
While some promising efforts have recently been made to connect farmers with new practices of water conservation and assist in the optimization and use of resources, these efforts have not eliminated the need for additional research and sustainable practices in farming. This is especially true for crops such as rice that rely heavily on large…

Bartholomew, Scott R.; Santana, Vanessa; Strimel, Greg J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Each year the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases an Annual Homeless Assessment Report that provides an estimate of the number of people experiencing homelessness (in sheltered and unsheltered situations). The report also provides estimates for specific homeless populations such as people experiencing chronic homelessness or…

Strimel, Greg J.; Morehouse, Abby; Bartholomew, Scott R.; Swift, Colin; Woessner, Jonathan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Computational thinking is a problem-solving technique traditionally employed by computer scientists to develop computer applications. However, computational thinking practices are now believed to be applicable to other fields (Google for Education, 2018), specifically those related to engineering and technology. Accordingly, the Advancing…

Love, Tyler S.; Bhatty, Abraham – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Within the past few years there has been an increasing emphasis on making computer science (CS) more accessible for all K-12 students. In 2013 there were 12 states that allowed CS courses to count towards high school graduation, and in 2018 that number had grown to 35 states plus the District of Columbia (Code.org, 2018). Due to the increasing…

Jones, Matthew; Bartholomew, Scott R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
One effort to reducing air pollution and global warming in recent years has centered on the replacement of fossil-fuel-burning vehicles with alternative energy options such as electric-powered transportation. In fact, electric vehicle technology is one of the fastest-growing, and ever-evolving, sectors of the energy industry (TR Fastenings, 2019).…

Preble, Brian C. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
The two-stroke engine is an engineering marvel that has been incorporated into many aspects of modern-day life. While many seek to eliminate the two-stroke, others seek to revive this simple and effective power plant, aiming to make it more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient. If successful, improvements could be far-reaching and…
