Best Practices Panel: Asee K12 Division 2009
2009 Annual Conference & Exposition Proceedings
The K-12 ENGINEERING AND PRE-COLLEGE OUTREACH DIVISION of ASEE is recognizing exemplary K-12 -university partnerships in engineering education at the 2009 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition in Austin, TX. To do this, the Division is sponsoring a panel session on Best Practices in K-12 and university partnerships. Submissions chosen for participation in this session demonstrate a true partnership between a K-12 school (or schools) and an engineering school/college at a university. Selected
... tnerships have proven success in the classroom and demonstrate engineering engagement and knowledge acquisition by K-12 students through age appropriate activities and lessons. Best Practices Partnership Panel winners' papers are authored collaboratively between engineering and technology education faculty and K-12 teachers. Details on the partnership's structure and goals and the successful strategies employed to overcome challenges and obstacles are included. Each partnership's description includes sample student product(s) and conveys how other partnerships may emulate the project. One proposal winner was chosen by a panel of reviewers at each of the following levels: preschool or elementary school; middle school; high school. The three winning abstracts have been used to create a conference paper for this session.
