Share your strategies for teaching engineering to students with special needs

As part of your STEM curriculum, do you teach engineering to students with special needs? If so, what strategies do you use? What challenges do you face (such as safety issues and forming teams for projects), and how do you deal with them? How do you encourage persistence, communication, creativity, and collaboration among students with special needs? If you would like to share your knowledge and advice in a future NSTA Reports article, please e-mail Debra Shapiro, Associate Editor, NSTA Reports, National Science Teachers Association.

IEEE’s Transactions on Education – Seeking reviewers for K-12 oriented papers

The well respected IEEE’s Transactions on Education journal predominately has resources that are focused on HigherEd. However, the Associate Editors are currently receiving many submissions related to research in K-12 on topics such as electronics, computer engineering, computational thinking, and coding research. It has been a consistent problem to find people to review these K-12 oriented submissions.
If you are interested in helping with the review of K-12 oriented papers please reach out to the Associate Editors (who are also active members of the PCEE division) Laura Bottomley and Steve O’Brien.
