Abstract Title: Design-based research project to develop a science and engineering education program linking field trip experiences to classroom experiences.
Abstract: The Next Generation Science Standards have incorporated engineering standards, requiring K-12 teachers to teach engineering. Unfortunately, teachers are ill-prepared and have little comfort to introduce these unfamiliar complex topics into their classrooms. The University of California at Santa Barbara and MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation partnered up to tackle this problem and bring physics-related engineering activities to teachers through the MOXI Engineering Explorations program. This poster will explore the development process and the research methods used to evaluate the programming including key challenges that arose from working with a museum outreach program. These include the collection of permission from multiple institutions, tracking program effectiveness over different facilitators, time constraints, and more.
