Abstract:
The goal of this paper will be to describe Project STEP, the importance of using inquiry-based learning methods to enhance student learning, especially when teaching urban high-school students, and the training involved in teaching engineers to teach using these techniques in under-resourced classrooms. Special attention is given to describing the impact on engineers who were transformed through teaching and learning education coursework and their experiences in these classrooms.
