Bringing engineering to P-12 students is wide-spread effort that many universities, businesses and professional organizations have taken up to expand who pursues engineering pathways. Our NSF-funded project has been studying how engineering disciplinary experts working with students can be most impactful, particularly for young female students. This workshop will engage participants in discussing role model and role model theory, analysis of classroom video, and exploration of new resources we have developed to maximize the impact of outreach programs that connect engineering students and professionals with K-12 students.
