|Abstract:||While collaboration is a major theme across makerspace studies (Papavlasopoulou et al., 2017), few studies consider how students perceive collaboration within makerspaces. This single case study explores secondary students’ perceptions of their collaborative experiences while working on a computer-aided design project in a formal makerspace. Survey, observation, and interview data were collected and qualitatively coded. Findings demonstrate how a student with technical expertise can take on increasing ownership of a peer’s project and limit learning opportunities for the partner student. Implications include how teachers can orchestrate and monitor collaborative relationships to support students’ success and agency in formal makerspaces.|
