The Engineering Exploration program for deaf and hard-of-hearing students at Metro Deaf School exposes middle school after-school program participants to engineering disciplines and concepts while integrating the Next Generation Science Standards into the program’s curriculum. This project began in the spring of 2014 with a short pilot of four two-hour long sessions, all focused on Creative Circuitry and sewable/wearable circuits. This paper will focus on the Engineering Exploration program of fall 2015 which consisted of six weekly, two-hour sessions, and a new engineering challenge every week. We present the results of our surveys and observations evaluating the effectiveness of the program in teaching the engineering design process, different engineering disciplines, and attitudes toward the field of Engineering.
