Abstract
  • This study investigated learning in three engineering student clubs at a large public university. This included a small-sized chemical reaction car competition, a large-sized formula racing team, and an international humanitarian engineering club. Research methods included observations of work sessions (N=27) and semi-structured interviews (N=19). Using Cultural Historical Activity Theory to frame the activity systems, this study addresses how the organizational structure of each club influences the ability to prepare students for professional practice.
