Abstract: Framing failure as constructive can help students engage in design practices. This case study examines the role of failure in a middle school human-centered robotics curriculum. Constructive failures are scaffolded failures that build a base for solving engineering design problems. This research explores constructive failure as an asset for learning through iterative design and considers the role of the facilitator in providing space for and supporting constructive failure experiences.
