AEEE

SYMPOSIUM

The Engineers Club in Baltimore Maryland

JUNE 5 - 7, 2019

ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM

The Advancing Excellence in P-12 Engineering Education (AEEE) collaborative and the 3rd AEEE Symposium seek to provide two powerful benefits: first, promote collaboration to pursue a vision/direction for P-12 Engineering Education; and second, the development of a coherent content framework for scaffolding the teaching of engineering at the secondary level.

 

The 3rd AEEE Symposium will specifically focus on the Framework for Engineering Teaching & Learning developed through the first two symposia. During this symposium, participants will hear from national leaders in engineering education, industry, and curriculum development to serve as provocateurs as they examine the engineering classroom experience and reflect on the needs for teacher preparation and development.

 

We, and our sponsors, hope that this work will serve as a basis for further thought and action to address the paucity and rigor of engineering education at the P-12 level.

She is an Adjunct Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt University where she is serving as the external evaluator on the NSF-funded Engineering For Us All (E4USA) project. Since January 2018, she works as a Senior Professional Development Manager at the Museum of Science in Boston’s Engineering is Elementary program Dr. Klein-Gardner serves as the chair of the American Society for Engineering Education Board of Director’s Committee on P12 Engineering Education and is a Fellow of the Society. Cheryl Farmer - Director of Precollege Engineering Education Initiatives, UT at Austin Ms. Farmer serves as Director of Precollege Engineering Education Initiatives for the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. As the founding director of the NSF-funded UTeachEngineering program, Ms. Farmer has led the development, launch, and evolution of the Engineer Your World program. Now in its eighth year, Engineer Your World provides a two-year (and expanding) curriculum sequence that integrates computational thinking with hands-on engineering design and problem-solving; teacher professional development and support programs that enable any STEM-literate, constructivist educator to be successful in the classroom; and dual-enrollment opportunities that empower students not just to earn college credit for their work, but also to experience and rise to expectations for college-level coursework at a top school of engineering. With a growing network that now serves 270+ educators and 10,000+ students across 26 states, the District of Columbia, and South Korea, Engineer Your World is committed to expanding opportunities in engineering education for all students, regardless of future career aspirations. In 2012 Ms. Farmer initiated a national effort to develop research-based Standards for Professional Development for K-12 Teachers of Engineering; from 2012 to 2015, she and Dr. Stacy Klein-Gardner of Vanderbilt University co-led this effort that resulted in the publication of the standards by the American Society for Engineering Education. Ms. Farmer is currently a member of the National Academy of Engineering’s panel on building educator capacity in K-12 engineering.

He is a passionate ally for diversity and inclusion and researches the impact of diversity on innovative thinking in teams. Previously, Dr. Eagle was appointed an assistant professor at Wayne State University and post-doc at Sandia National Labs. His PhD in Aerospace Engineering is from the University of Michigan. At AEEE, he will share his work as a curriculum developer for Engineering for US All.

Jackelyn Lopez Roshwalb Jackelyn Lopez Roshwalb is a Keystone Instructor with the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland. She serves as the course coordinator and an instructor for the school’s Introduction to Engineering Design course. Previously, Jackelyn taught high school mathematics and physics. She is a curriculum team member of the NSF-funded Engineering For Us All (E4USA) project, an initiative to deliver a nationwide standardized high school course in engineering that is available to and accessible for all high school students. Darryll Pines Dr. Darryll J. Pines currently serves as the Nariman Farvardin Professor of Engineering and Dean of the A. James Clark School of Engineering. As dean of the engineering school with over 6,000 students, Pines led the development and implementation of a strategy to improve teaching in fundamental undergraduate courses and raise student retention, achieve success in national and international student competitions, place new emphasis on service learning and grand societal challenges, promote STEM education among high school students, increase the impact of research programs, and expand philanthropic contributions to the school. Pines is currently leading an initiative to pilot a first-of-its-kind, nationwide, pre-college course on engineering principles and design. The pilot program, Engineering For US All (E4USA), will test the effectiveness of a standardized educational curriculum across multiple states. The course, made possible through a $4 million NSF grant, is intended to eventually provide the equivalent of placement credit for an introductory college course.
