In this Discovery Minute, Director of the STEM Center and Associate Professor in Curriculum and Instruction Victor Sampson discusses how Argument Driven Engineering can introduce more students to engineering through the math courses they already take.
Integrating engineering in the curriculum in this way, Sampson says, can help increase the exposure to and involvement in engineering among those who are currently underrepresented in the field. Similar steps are being taken to increase access to computer science and other areas of STEM education.
Sampson is an Elizabeth Glenadine Gibb Teaching Fellow.
