Abstract: We investigated the ways in which youth makers from two low-income urban communities engaged in sustained STEM-rich, making towards making a difference in their communities. Drawing upon a mobilities of learning framework and four years of ethnographic data across two making spaces (41 youth maker projects), we found that as youth engaged with community across their making efforts, they foregrounded their relationality to communities in their design work, both within activities and across timescales. We also found that engaging making with community opened up new and different opportunities to co-make, as the youth drew on, and expanded their social networks. We discuss how these findings impact understanding of how a more equitable making culture can evolve, and its implications for how youth imagine their social futures in and through making.
