In STEM the Tide, David Drew suggests a student will likely commit to the field of STEM at around sophomore year of high school. Thus, educators are always looking to foster engagement for STEM within their classrooms. This study explores such engagement through a week-long, group-based STEM project implemented for students at a grade-appropriate level. In addition, the study looks to investigate various factors that impact engagement in math class.
