Abstract: Research established that most learners perceive STEM learning environments as settings that exclude diverse ways of thinking. We investigate factors behind this trend in two sites that recently implemented fully-equipped makerspaces, but have deeply different socioeconomic contexts. We identify factors associated with increased self-efficacy and attitudes toward STEM among male and female students.
