Abstract: Design-based research, when taking place within research practice partnership, leadsto an essential tension between the interventionist nature of educational design and acommitment to praxis. We encountered this tension within a DBR project to design acomputational science exhibit within a science museum, and in this paper, we highlight howpaying attention to praxis shifted our epistemological enframings and methodologies of ourwork. Moving away from a device-centered approach focused solely on the design of theexhibit, we show how listening carefully to museum facilitators led to the recognition of theirhidden labor, and helped us to explicitly position the museum facilitators as co-designers.
