The aim of this learn was once to evaluate the worth and feasibility of constructing and imposing content material criteria for engineering schooling on the K-12 point. content material criteria were constructed for 3 disciplines in STEM education--science, know-how, and mathematic--but now not for engineering. thus far, a small yet becoming variety of K-12 scholars are being uncovered to engineering-related fabrics, and constrained yet exciting facts means that engineering schooling can stimulate curiosity and increase studying in arithmetic and technological know-how in addition to increase figuring out of engineering and know-how. Given this history, an affordable query is whether or not criteria may increase the standard and elevate the volume of training and studying of engineering in K-12 education.

The ebook concludes that, even though it is theoretically attainable to enhance criteria for K-12 engineering schooling, it might be tremendous tricky to make sure their usefulness and powerful implementation. This end is supported through the subsequent findings: (1) there's fairly constrained event with K-12 engineering schooling in U.S. straightforward and secondary colleges, (2) there isn't at this time a severe mass of academics certified to convey engineering guideline, (3) facts in regards to the influence of standards-based academic reforms on pupil studying in different topics, equivalent to arithmetic and technology, is inconclusive, and (4) there are major obstacles to introducing stand-alone criteria for a completely new content material sector in a curriculum already confused with studying targets in additional proven domain names of study.
