505 0  Introduction -- Arguments for and against content 
       standards for K-12 engineering education -- Leveraging 
       existing standards to improve K-12 engineering education -
       - Conclusions and recommendations. 
520    "The goal of this study was to assess the value and 
       feasibility of developing and implementing content 
       standards for engineering education at the K-12 level. 
       Content standards have been developed for three 
       disciplines in STEM education--science, technology, and 
       mathematic--but not for engineering. To date, a small but 
       growing number of K-12 students are being exposed to 
       engineering-related materials, and limited but intriguing 
       evidence suggests that engineering education can stimulate
       interest and improve learning in mathematics and science 
       as well as improve understanding of engineering and 
       technology. Given this background, a reasonable question 
       is whether standards would improve the quality and 
       increase the amount of teaching and learning of 
       engineering in K-12 education. The book concludes that, 
       although it is theoretically possible to develop standards
       for K-12 engineering education, it would be extremely 
       difficult to ensure their usefulness and effective 
       implementation. This conclusion is supported by the 
       following findings: (1) there is relatively limited 
       experience with K-12 engineering education in U.S. 
       elementary and secondary schools, (2) there is not at 
       present a critical mass of teachers qualified to deliver 
       engineering instruction, (3) evidence regarding the impact
       of standards-based educational reforms on student learning
       in other subjects, such as mathematics and science, is 
       inconclusive, and (4) there are significant barriers to 
       introducing stand-alone standards for an entirely new 
       content area in a curriculum already burdened with 
       learning goals in more established domains of study."--
