Student work featured in technology education journal

Three students in Purdue’s engineering/technology teacher education have been featured in the December 2016 edition of the Children’s Technology and Engineering Journal, a quarterly publication. The issue focused on the relationship between technology and society.

Students Michael Croly and Nate Cool worked with their professor, Greg Strimel, to submit their lesson plan on exploring the connection between technology and society through GMOs. The students created the lesson during a Midwest Regional Technology and Engineering Education Collegiate Association (TEECA) competition in October.

Strimel also nominated student Molly Brogan to be featured in the journal’s Preservice Teacher Spotlight. Brogan was selected, and she was able to showcase an education activity she designed, titled “Let’s Go Camping.” The activity, designed for third graders, requires students to work in teams to design a shelter for camping that will keep them dry overnight.

The journal is produced by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) in conjunction with its Children’s Council.
