As government and industry leaders place increased importance on entrepreneurship and innovation within science, technology, and engineering (STEM) in higher education, courses, programs, and centers are being developed to enhance students' learning and development in these areas. Despite this growth in programming and the extensive entrepreneurship research in the literature, little research has been completed regarding ways in which students in STEM disciplines value, identify with, and are willing to participate in entrepreneurship activities. This paper presents work in progress to develop a survey and run focus groups to better understand STEM students' perceptions of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship educational opportunities. The results can be used by educators to better understand the knowledge, beliefs, and practices of students being served by entrepreneurship and innovation programming, and to identify approaches to engaging more students in this critical area.
