C-PIECE Framework: Collaborative Practices at Interactive Engineering Challenge Exhibits
Are you interested in co-creating fun activities that exercise groups’ engineering practices? Are you curious about the types of practices that groups can exercise through exhibits?
The Framework of Collaborative Practices at Interactive Engineering Challenge Exhibits (C-PIECE Framework) provides informal education professionals with a guide when co-developing, designing, facilitating, evaluating and researching engineering design challenge experiences.
This framework was developed with input from inter-generational families, including girls 9 to 14 years old. It was adapted from theory-based constructs of engineering proficiencies and refined using evidence and iterative reviews for use in an informal learning context. This framework can help all of us stretch our work in new directions.
