Abstract

Investment in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education has been identified by the U.S. Department of Education and other agencies as a pressing need. Although science and mathematics, and to a lesser extent, technology-based learning opportunities have been important features of past educational programs sponsored by the National Science Foundation and can be readily found in K-12 curriculums, the E (“engineering”) in STEM is underrepresented. Currently, few efforts are focused on an intensive, long-term, coherent approach to incorporating engineering content and methods into teachers’ preservice or in-service professional development.
