|Abstract:||This case study explores perceptions of undergraduate teacher education students, enrolled in an online course, on types of educational experiences that foster engagement in science-related courses and impact their active participation. The use of LEGO® and technology was a vehicle to implement this inquiry. The case study also provides information about faculty practices perceived as positive towards science teaching, student success and increased completion rates of college students majoring in STEM disciplines. Feedback from undergraduate students provided information on how to enhance the teaching of science online. Finally, the value of this case study not only facilitates better understanding on how to increase the number of pre-service teachers interested in STEM teaching but also to increase the number of qualified STEM teachers for public schools that will teach the next generation of K-12 students.|
