Abstract: This research study explored the relationships between three types of co-designers in 4-H STEM learning through design programs: youth participants, volunteer educators, and the curriculum. Each co-designer was involved in a process of planning and making in order to accomplish a goal to satisfy requirements subject to constraints. The enactment of the learning environment revealed tensions between the co-designers evidenced in participation structures (negotiated between the curriculum and educators); abstract versus concrete approaches (between the educators and youth); and tensions amongst youth peers while engaging in small group design teams (between curriculum and youth).
