Abstract

This paper discusses the current state of research about integrating the engineering design process (EDP) into upper-elementary and middle school curriculum, and the impacts of such research on the preparation of bilingual teachers. The discussion begins with an overview of the subject, describing the importance educators and engineering organizations have placed on the integration of the EDP into K-12 instruction. Then a table provides an overview of specific lessons, projects, and programs that have been developed and disseminated. The paper then describes the professional development that was provided to a group of teachers at a bilingual K-8 school, followed by a discussion of some of the next steps for furthering research on this topic.
