Description: Recently, the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) has embarked on an ambitious effort to promote and improve K-12 engineering and engineering technology education. Since 2003, the ASEE has created a new K-12 division dedicated to K-12 engineering education, created a guidebook for high school students called Engineering, Go for It! that was distributed to almost 350,000 secondary students, created an e-newsletter that reaches 10,000 secondary teachers, guidance counselors, and outreach program leaders, and created a survey to understand what secondary teachers think of engineering as an academic and career pathway for their students. Coupled with the information from the aforementioned surveys, the ideas and suggestions from conference attendees and current research in the field of K-12 education, Dougless, Iversen and Kalyandurg (2004) have developed a set of six guidelines for improving K-12 engineering education and outreach: One program that seems related to nearly all of the aforementioned recommendations is Project Lead the Way (PLTW). PLTW is a high school curriculum in which students are introduced to engineering and engineering technology through a series of rigorous academic courses. Curriculum, textbooks, software and labs are standardized throughout the experience regardless of geographic location, and all PLTW teachers undergo extensive training in curriculum, pedagogy and delivery of the program. Project Lead the Way is a hands-on, contextual curriculum that uses an interdisciplinary approach and is based on national, state and local Science, Technology, Engineering and Math standards.
