Abstract: Maker education stands out as an approach to STEM learning that has several benefits. However, despite the recent rise in its popularity, making in education may be excluding some groups of learners. In this poster, we report partial findings of a mixed-methods research project carried out in two high schools serving blue-collar, working-class families in Southern Brazil. We find that factors associated with shifts in self-reported attitude towards STEM and self-efficacy in engineering differ across genders.
