Dr. Yvette Pearson Weatherton delivered four presentations at the Annual Conference of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) in Vancouver, British Columbia in June 2011. The presentations covered a wide range of engineering education topics related to her work on projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The topics included mathematics performance and first-year retention, efforts to infuse the civil engineering curriculum with sustainability and perspectives on why women, minorities and people with disabilities remain underrepresented in engineering. One paper also examined the benefits of kinesthetic and computational modeling in high school chemistry courses. All of the papers were published in the ASEE Conference Proceedings and are available online at www.asee.org. Co-authors include faculty from the Colleges of Engineering and Education, an undergraduate civil engineering student, and a high school chemistry teacher.
