Article
To better understand the components that create an equitable learning environment, we have analyzed a number of highly successful programs that we developed and conducted targeting K-12 students, their teachers, and university students. We identified four criteria experienced by the student that are essential for his or her recruitment, participati...
Conference Paper
In a freshman level Introduction to Engineering Design course, students were required to design, construct, test and evaluate a system which would mimic the performance of a heart-lung machine. The goal of each design was to flow the ‘blood’ at an appropriate rate through their system, which was required to oxygenate and cool the ‘blood’. Their des...
Article
A report by the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine titled "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" specifically calls for the development of rigorous new K-12 curriculum materials to improve science and mathematics education as a highest priority action. With funding from the National Science Foundati...
Article
In recent years, enrollment in STEM related fields has steadily declined. To combat this, the INSPIRES curriculum (INcreasing Student Participation, Interest, and Recruitment in Engineering & Science) was developed with the goal to increase student motivation to learn by incorporating real world engineering examples and interactive lessons into the...
Article
INSPIRES is an interactive curriculum designed for high school students with the goal of INcreasing Student Participation, Interest, and Recruitment in Engineering & Science. It was created to target the ITEA Standards for Technological Literacy and to increase involvement in STEM related fields. This curriculum allows for students to learn basic e...
Conference Paper
A Professional Development (PD) pilot program was conducted with twelve High School Technology Education teachers during the summer of 2009. The three week PD Institute threaded the use of the INSPIRES (INcreasing Student Participation, Interest and Recruitment in Engineering & Science) curriculum throughout the program which included deepened teac...
Conference Paper
For the last ten years, the Introduction to Engineering Design course at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) has evolved from a traditional lecture and design-on-paper course, to an active learning lecture and project-based learning engineering design course. The importance of learning teamwork skills and communication skills are emp...
Conference Paper
In order to create an interest among high school students in STEM fields a high school outreach program was developed. Students from a core Chemical & Biochemical Engineering class (Transport Phenomena II: Heat and Mass Transfer) are required to go to a local high school or middle school and make a presentation to increase the high school students'...
Article
As both a student and teaching fellow in an Introductory Engineering Design class, experiences and observations have allowed me to see the many benefits of the course's design project requirement. For many young engineers who chose their major based on an interest in math and science, the design project provides their first encounter with synthesis...
Conference Paper

This special session is organized to provide an interactive forum for the introduction of a set of curriculum modules developed under IEEE's Real World Engineering Projects (RWEP) program. The modules, available to the public via a RWEP web portal, are designed for use in the first-year engineering and computer science classroom, and are hands-on,...
Article
Over the last four years, the Introductory Engineering Science (ENES 101) course has been revised from a traditional lecture and design-on-paper course, to an active learning lecture and project based learning engineering design course. The design teams are required not only to research, design, construct, evaluate, test and present their product,...
Article
The University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) undertook various initiatives to improve engineering education and awareness. The Introduction to Engineering Course from a traditional lecture and design-on-paper course, to an active learning lecture and hands on engineering design course was revamped. A latest variation of the Introduction to En...
Article
Taryn Bayles is a Visiting Lecturer of Chemi-cal and Biochemical Engineering at UMBC. She has spent half of her career working in industry and the other half teaching engineer-ing. She received her BSChE from New Mexico State University, and her MSChE, MSPetE, and PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. Her re-search interest...
Article
The high school level Introduction to Engineering course was developed based on the interest and ideas that emerged from a workshop conducted at UMBC in 2001. The main objective of the workshop was to better equip high school teachers and counselors to identify, guide, and prepare prospective students at each of their schools for a career in engine...
Article
Describes a summer institute for science teachers and their students in which the main goal was to increase enrollment in engineering and to encourage women and minority groups to increase their representation in the engineering workforce. Includes a description of typical chemical engineering jobs and general instruction in material balances, flui...
Article
In 2003 the state of Maryland implemented an education initiative which requires all Maryland students to enroll in algebra classes and pass a high school assessment in algebra/data analysis in order to graduate. Our Introducing Engineering Through Mathematics project, funded by the National Science Foundation (EEC -212101), introduces entry level...

Ms. Morrell has spent the last three years developing a new educator professional development program entitled, “Closing the Empathy Gap.” Launched in March 2017, this research-based program highlights the increasing levels of local, national, and international distrust and alienation spreading among diverse groups and the role technology and the information society play in both creating and addressing apathy, disinterest, and discord. It is no longer enough that the information society look at issues of access and content for advancing society, but must also undertake to integrate issues of quality of content, accuracy, and intention that intersects with diversity of the user by gender, race, religion, economic power, and geography.
