Engineering Construct Knowledge

Description of Project:
Interview transcripts from students (grades 2-4) were examined to measure change in understanding of engineering constructs using a coding scheme that is in development. The participants were students of teachers from a large, urban school-district that participated in two summer teacher professional development (TPD) engineering education academies and received continued support from a university center devoted to P-12 engineering education. The coding scheme has been refined and will be applied to data from all years of the DRK-12 program.
