2021 Poster - Research in Service to Practice: Equitably Consequential Making among Youth from Historically Marginalized Communities
In Research + Practice Partnerships with 4 makerspaces in 2 cities, we pursue equity-oriented STEM-rich making with youth from historically underrepresented backgrounds, particularly BIPOC youth and youth in refugee & low-income communities, towards developing:
- a theory-based and data-driven framework for equitably consequential making
- a set of individual-level and program-level cases with exemplars of equitably consequential making (and the associated challenges) that can be used by researchers and practitioners for guiding the field
- an initial set of guiding principles (with indicators) for equitably consequential making in practice.
We seek to build capacity among STEM-oriented maker practitioners, researchers and youth to expand prevailing norms of making towards more transformative outcomes for youth.
