Sheraton Seattle | Seattle | WAPlease provide a one-paragraph bio for each presenter (in the order listed above). The bio shouldnot exceed 70 words and should be written as you would want it to appear on the ASEE websiteand program materials.1) Greg Burnham spent ten years of the last eleven years teaching science and engineering in alow socio economic high school where 98% of the students were under represented in STEMfields based on race, gender, sexual orientation or economic classification. He has found creativeapproaches to engineering like the use of non-traditional materials in engineer projects oftentimes helps inspire creative engineering in students from under represented populations. Thepresentation will address issues of inclusion and the need for diverse perspectives in engineeringin the future.2) Kenyan Burnham: Undergraduate Electrical Engineering student at Texas Tech University. Hehas worked with STEM pipeline/education programs for seven years as a participant, mentor andteacher. His primary focus is RobArch research and my current professional internship inrobotics and control systems. I am a lab assistant and safety captain in the department ofElectrical Engineering, the Robotics and Embedded Systems Lab, Advanced VehicleEngineering Lab, and the Undergraduate Laboratories3) Stephanie Foster received her B.S. in mathematics from UT Permian Basin. She received herM.A. in mathematics from University of Texas at Austin concentrating in application ofparametric equations. She taught pre-calculus and calculus at Estacado High School in LubbockTX and dual credit math through Lubbock Christian University. Currently she is planningcalculus and pre-calculus curriculum for Plano Academy High School a project based highschool in Plano, TX WORKSHOP INFORMATIONProposed TitlePlay-Drive Electric Car Challenge (STEM Project for Classroom or Outreach)Abstract: Please provide a concise description that includes the workshop’s learning objectives(maximum 750 characters). The abstract is used on the ASEE website, program materials, andotherK-12 Workshop promotional activities.This workshop incorporates electricity concepts, circuits, iterative process and innovativematerials into a Problem Based Learning (PBL) activity. Working with conductive and non-conductive clay teachers will mold an activity they can take back to their classroom andchallenge their students with. The project will be embedded with learning objectives including2015-ASEE-K12-Proposal-Form Page 2 of 7 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL FORM 2015 Annual ASEE K-12 Workshop on Engineering Education “Authentic Engineering: Representing & Emphasizing the E in STEM” Presented by Dassault Systems Saturday, June 13, 2015 8:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M. Sheraton Seattle | Seattle | WAmath, physics and engineering that can be refined or modified for specific classroom or outreachuse.Workshop Description. Please provide a detailed description of the proposed workshop that, atminimum, explicitly addresses the following (maximum 4,000 characters): a. Learning objectives b. Hands-on activities and interactive exercises c. Materials that participants can take with them d. Practical application for teachers and outreach staff 2. Greg and Kenyan Burnham will share a little about themselves and the innovative programs and classes they collaborate on and the K-12 pipeline to higher education they have contributed to and participated in for over seven years. Greg and Kenyan will share their experiences working with Problem Based Learning (PBL) and STEM in different settings including teams (robotics and other), classrooms, camps, teacher trainings and past presentations. Both will provide ideas for PBL based assignments and competitions that teachers can take can take back to their classrooms and University faculty and professionals can use to start or improve their K-12 outreach. 3. An electricity design project that utilizes conductive and non-conductive clay, simple circuits, resistance, LED and small motors will be introduced. The presenters will introduce concepts of PBL and example learning objectives will be provided for participant’s consideration and a brief discussion of which objectives participants might use the activity for. Basics like applications of algebra, Ohm’s Law, circuits, conductive properties of materials, project cycle and the iterative process and engineering team management. 4. The instructors will introduce the engineering, electricity and math concepts they teach and demonstrate with the activity and lead a brief discussion on how it can be used by workshop participants. A basic check list and learning objective based rubric will be provided to lay out a time line for both classroom and outreach scenarios and demonstrate the possible learning comes of the project. Finally an abbreviated version of the challenge will commence for teachers and outreach faculty to get hands on experience working in teams with the activity. A discussion with the now experienced participants will be used to close the session and create a network for participants that want to continue to collaborate on project based learning after the workshop. 5. Participants will leave with ideas and materials to apply to their own classrooms and outreach events. The workshop write-up and several other PBL activity and competition write ups will be provided, as well as, contact information for the presenters for future assistance. Some participants will leave with the workshop materials and their teams’ final project.2015-ASEE-K12-Proposal-Form Page 3 of 7 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL FORM 2015 Annual ASEE K-12 Workshop on Engineering Education “Authentic Engineering: Representing & Emphasizing the E in STEM” Presented by Dassault Systems Saturday, June 13, 2015 8:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M.

Sheraton Seattle | Seattle | WAAuthentic Engineering Connection. Identify and describe how you will explicitly address theways in which your lesson or activity is representative of the processes, habits of mind andpractices used by engineers, or is demonstrative of work in specific engineering fields.i At leastone of those must be within the first four listed, below; i.e., do not only check “other”. Check allthat apply: Use of an engineering design process that has at least one iteration/improvement Attention to specific engineering habits of mind Attention to engineering practices (as described in the NGSS/Framework and as practiced by engineers) Attention to specific engineering careers or fields related to the lesson/activity Other (please describe below)Provide a description of how you will explicitly address these aspects of authentic engineering inyour workshop (maximum 2,000 characters):Emphasis will be placed on the cyclic nature of engineering project design. The plastic andductile properties of the conductive material make it possible for team participants to completeseveral iterations of the project in the relatively short period of time the workshop will occur in.This property also augments the physics and math portion of this project making the resistanceand conductivity manipulate able. Specifically, algebraic manipulation and Ohm’s Law can beused to determine resistance of the material as it is varied. These qualities of the material carryover well to the classroom, camp or outreach events the participants may want to use the activityfor in the future.Diversity. This year is the American Society for Engineering Education’s “Year of Action onDiversity.” It is essential that we have a diverse engineering workforce to solve diverseproblems. To do that and to have an engineering-literate public, it is essential that we reach everypreK-12 student with high-quality engineering education, drawing on issues of access and equityin the classroom and in the curriculum. Reviewers would like to know how your proposedworkshop will address diversity.Provide a description of how you will explicitly address diversity – e.g., diversity with respect togender/sex, ethnicity or race, special education inclusion, socio-economic status, or LGBT status– in your workshop (maximum 2,000 characters):Greg Burnham spent ten years of the last eleven years teaching science and engineering in a lowsocio economic high school where 98% of the students were under represented in STEM fieldsbased on race, gender, sexual orientation or economic classification.
