To teach STEM content to K-12 students, and recruit talented and diverse K-12 students into STEM, many outreach programs at universities in the United States rely on the collective efforts of undergraduate students. Outreach design and research have typically focused on the K-12 students and their teachers, leaving the effect of the outreach on the STEM undergraduates themselves to be an important but overlooked consideration that has received less attention in the engineering education literature. This WIP paper describes the preliminary findings of a systematic review of literature on the impact(s) of involving undergraduates in engineering outreach with a particular focus on studies that report on the impact on the undergraduate students. Supporting this effort is the NSF EArly-concept Grant for Exploratory Research (EAGER) program.
