The mission of this research is to develop a theory of culturally-contextualized engineering design curricula and assessment tools for Navajo middle school students, grounded in a study of how Navajo students and Navajo professionals experience, understand, and apply engineering design in the context of their culture, community, and society. This foundation will support future educational innovations and illuminate pathways for Navajo students to pursue higher education and careers in STEM. This paper describes the foundation for this research and the current progress in the development of curriculum modules that teach Navajo culture and engineering design side-by-side.
