Interest Model and Interviews

Description of Project: 

A model of student interest has been designed based on previous research across multiple content areas and will be applied to elementary students learning engineering in the classroom. Student interview transcripts from AISD years 1-4 will be coded based on the model of interest to identify triggers of interest, or events that lead elementary students to form an interest in engineering, either situated or maintained.
