Abstract: The goals of this symposium are to explore Making as a pathway to meaningful engagement with STEM disciplines and meaningful disciplinary engagement within a STEM discipline, how Making can enrich and transform scientific practices, and the tensions involved. Making experiences will be examined from perspectives such as equity and justice, personal relevance and affect, the role of materiality in scientific practice, disciplinary engagement, educational reform, and the role of teachers. These issues will be explored in different informal and formal US and international settings, and in terms of the diverse identities of the participating adults, teachers, children, youth, high school and undergraduate student Makers. Together, these rich and diverse perspectives and contexts will provide an in-depth and broad discussion of Making and its promise for STEM education.
