Abstract

The objective of this project is to develop and design mobile content for introducing engineering technology to high school students. More specifically, we intend to work on a sequence of modules that will establish connections between high school mathematics and physics to modern technologies associated with smart phones, iPods and other high-tech products. The participants of the project will use the previously developed AJDSP (for Android devices) and iJDSP (for iPhones and iPads) apps to facilitate this process. Additionally, modules have been developed that have been embedded in math classes. Anticipated benefits of the project include creating positive attitudes towards STEM areas that will help recruit high school students and minorities in engineering, math and science fields. After an initial pilot study and assessments at CDS High School, these activities will be disseminated to other high schools. In order to obtain feedback from high school students and teachers, we will hold workshops and collect assessment results. These results will also provide us assessments about the effectiveness of the project, and allow us to make modifications to the project as necessary. The project is part of TUES Phase 3 and I/UCRC RET activities.
