They address this issue in their article, "How does service learning increase and sustain interest in engineering education for underrepresented pre-engineering college students?"

Next, in the article, "Involvement in Out-of-Class Activities: A Mixed Research Synthesis Examining Outcomes with a Focus on Engineering Students", authors Denise Simmons, Rongrong Yu, and Elizabeth Creamer discuss the importance of getting to know STEM students on a personal level, rather than just based on academic performance.

Following this article, authors Petros Katsioloudis and Mildred Jones analyze a recent study in their article, "Impacts of Effective Temperature on Sectional View Drawing Ability and Implications for Engineering and Technology Education Students" This analysis was done to determine whether or not a significant change in temperature has an effect on students' spatial visualization ability or their ability to sketch a sectional view. …
