Interconnecting STEM with Informed Engineering Design Pedagogy

Abstract

"This paper describes how K-12 Engineering can be an important pedagogical approach in mathematics and science courses. K-12 Engineering is examined in a STEM context with examples provided. As part of an NSF middle school science project, a framework was developed using informed engineering design pedagogy. Feedback from science teachers who participated in a professional development workshop using this framework indicated that they were greatly interested in using and confident in their ability to use the engineering instructional pedagogy in science. Furthermore, when surveyed again after several months about their use of the informed engineering design, these teachers provided similar feedback, with several reporting that they had already begun implementing one of the engineering based science lessons introduced during the summer workshop."
