1. Rischard, Kyla Alexandra. STEM UP: A STEM Undergraduate Program to Help Middle School Youth Select STEM Majors and Careers through Cognitive Apprenticeship .

Degree: 2015, University of Arizona

This study examined how middle school students planned to obtain future STEM college majors and careers through a possible selves curriculum in a 13-week, in-school cognitive apprenticeship model. STEM undergraduates mentored STEM-interested middle school mentees (N= 21) from six under-served middle schools. Through possible selves activities, mentees worked on strategies to avoid becoming their feared possible self and become their hoped-for possible self. In the middle of the semester, mentee self-reported competency in STEM fields, motivation, administrator-reported STEM course grades, and STEM attendance were collected. On average, mentees felt 10.67% more motivated to pursue STEM than they felt competent in STEM. Mentees who reported higher competency tended to have higher course grades, and mentees who reported higher motivation tended to have higher attendance, although attendance was high overall, indicating insufficient sample size or variance to demonstrate significance. Mentees who attended class more tended to have a higher course grade but the same statistical issue occurred in that there may not have been a significant correlation due to sampling and self- selection biases. The majority of mentees identified unrelated possible selves, defined concrete self-improvement and abstract self-maintenance strategies, identified self-discipline as a requirement in middle school, described intellectual independence and teacher harmony strategies to solve everyday problems in middle school, identified instructivist college requirements, described responsibility as a transferable strategy, and dependence on an expert as a nontransferable strategy to solve long-term problems in college to obtain their STEM possible self.

2. Remmerswaal, N.A. (author). Tra-digital Hybrids: Using digital fabrication to create a hybrid design for developing countries.

Degree: 2015, Delft University of Technology

Can improved technology make a difference in under-served communities to improve the existing build environment in a cultural sustainable way and make possible endogenous solutions? The technical research paper highlights the technical research done to answer this particular question. The research, that focuses on technical solutions to serve the urban poor of the Indonesian kampung, is aimed at providing both self-build solutions as self-sustaining manufacturing processes, making use of both Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). The research is twofold; first the kampung of Indonesia are researched; the site, building methods, materials and the make-up of the Indonesian house are discussed. Second, digital-manufacturing processes are researched using both general literature and reference projects. These reference projects are tested on eight sets of criteria to research their potential when applied in the Indonesian urban kampung. In order of priority they are; Durability, Multi Storey Height, Cost material, Cost Machinery, Local Assembly, Difficulty Assembly, Personalization and Local Materials. From the technical research two most promising project-references were chosen and combined with local building methods in a hybrid to construct both re-usable CNC milled moulds for multi-storey construction, as for constructing bricks.
