Recent studies showed that embedding engineering at K-12 level has a positive impact on stimulating interest inand improving learning outcomes of science and mathematics, and development of 21st Century skills. Engineering activities are used as a way for displaying an authentic applicability of taught math and science in K-12 students in real applications. In this context, an outreach activity, namely Life is Engineering Program (LIEP) was launched in 2009 by the College of Engineering at… CONTINUE READING
