INSPIRE Research Institute for Pre-College Engineering
INSPIRE is a research institute in the School of Engineering Education focusing on pre-college engineering education research and integration with science, technology, mathematics, and literacy. INSPIRE's research informs the development of curricula, assessment instruments, teacher and parent education, museum exhibits, afterschool programs and STEM education policy within the full spectrum of P-12 engineering education. INSPIRE has three strategic focus areas: 1) integrating engineering with science, technology, mathematics and language arts, 2) characterizing engineering thinking for pre-college settings, and 3) promoting the participation of underrepresented populations in engineering.
