Abstract

Due to a recent decline in mathematics and science performance among primary school students in Denmark and waning interest in engineering, the Engineering College of Copenhagen (IHK) sponsored this project to increase engineering enrollment. The project created six short-term, high-interest, hands-on programs allowing Danish students to experience the everyday activities of engineers. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of programs revealed success at increasing engineering interest and awareness. Program materials were left with IHK for future program implementation at other Danish schools.
