WIWD (What is Engineering? What do Engineers Do?)

Description of Project:
Prior to and following engineering instruction at the Arlington Summer Academies, teachers completed an open-ended assessment that asked, “What is engineering?” and “What do engineers do?” The responses were analyzed using the Bloom’s Taxonomy coding system, first published in JEE (vol. 100, #3). The purpose of the study is to investigate the effects of an engineering intervention on teacher understanding of engineers and engineering.
