Abstract: This symposium brings together research that examines equity as it relates to facilitation across a diverse set of tinkering and making activities and settings. Drawing on an equity framework for out-of-school learning, we focus on the potential for facilitation to create transformative learning opportunities for learners who have been historically marginalized in making and tinkering activities, including communities of color; note the complexity of equitable facilitation across settings and contexts; and highlight the importance of facilitator reflection to acknowledge and challenge hegemonic approaches in STEAM. Taken collectively, these papers highlight not only how facilitation is essential for making productive connections between making and tinkering and the sociopolitical issues at play in our world, but how those pedagogical practices themselves are sociopolitical, connected with histories and disciplines in ways that can either reify existing inequities in STEAM or create new, more equitable futures for learners and facilitators.
