 Dear EWB-USA Student Chapter Executive Board members,
>
> Please pass the announcement below on to your members as soon as possible.
> This is an opportunity to participate in a study on the effects of
> service-based educational experience over time.
>
> To: EWB-USA engineering students
>
> Background: "Engineering Pathways" is a research project funded by the U.S.
> National Science Foundation that aims to follow the professional
> trajectories of about 500 engineering students over the next three years.
> In
> brief, our research will involve measuring changes over time in students'
> beliefs, knowledge, skills and attitudes towards engineering and their own
> engineering education.  Our effort will include students who are involved
> in
> service-based efforts (like EWB) and those who are not. Our hope is that by
> following students over time, the effects of service-based educational
> experiences, both positive and negative, can be identified. This insight
> will in turn influence the design of engineering education in the future.
>
> If you are selected, you will be asked to do a few short online surveys a
> couple times each year, and some participants will be interviewed. All
> participants will be compensated for their time each year.
>
> Restrictions: you must be (1) an engineering student, (2) currently
> involved
> in an Engineers Without Borders chapter at your university, (3) either a
> first-year OR junior-year student now (sorry, no sophomores, seniors, or
> grad students), (4) at least 18-years old by February 1, 2011, and (5) NOT
> a
> student at Michigan Tech, Tufts, Colorado-Boulder, or James Madison (we
> already have those universities as focus schools)
>
> Time of involvement: a couple hours per year for three years
>
> To express your interest in being a participant, go to:
> http://www.surveymonkey.com/EngineeringPathways2
> Time to complete: 5 minutes
>
> Due: Monday 28 January 2011, 7:59 am Eastern
>
> The study will begin in early February, 2011. If you have any questions,
> please contact the study's lead researchers:
