Abstract: The new science standards incorporate engineering practices, but few teachers are prepared to enact these. This poster presents preliminary findings from professional development that placed 14 teachers in university engineering labs for six weeks, tracking changes in their understanding of STEM practices, their designs for their classrooms, and the impact on their students. Preliminary findings demonstrate deepened teacher understanding of STEM practices and that their students begin with notions that do not match STEM practices.
