Abstract: This poster looks at students' productive tinkering in a design activity. We analyze the emergence of a student-generated task and how the process of tinkering supported students in making progress in the task. In design activities, systematic, planned approaches are often valued over tinkering, a process which shortcuts that kind of analytical thinking. We argue that tinkering has value as a productive engineering practice and that it can support more systematic approaches.
