The K-16 Engineering Pipeline Engineering Success in STEM K-16 project is a one-year project funded by the Office of Naval Research ONR to develop an engineering pathway of high school courses and requirements within the Hawaii Department of Education HIDOE that leads directly to acceptance into the College of Engineering, University of Hawaii at Manoa UHM or other STEM-related technical training in Hawaii. This project addresses the need for a rigorous statewide Engineering Pathway of core courses and requisite teacher training support services within the HIDOE to increase the number of home grown engineers and technicians who will remain in Hawaii for employment at Pearl Harbor, NAFAC, SPAWAR, and other non-DoD STEM-based companies. A process evaluation examined the capacity of the K-16 to meet objectives and outcomes that establish and institutionalize an engineering pathway between the HI DOE and the UHM. The K-16 also provided additional supports in the final year of the Engineering Success in Stem ESS project to high school teachers in six complex areas Castle, Kaimuki , Kealakehe, Leilehua,Moanalua, and Pearl City high schools. This report summarizes the K-16 projects progress toward meeting the objectives and outcomes at the end of Year 1.
