IDEAS: Inventing, designing, and engineering on the autism spectrum

NSF Awards: 1614436

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

Funded by the Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program at NSF, IDEAS: Inventing, designing, and engineering on the autism spectrum is a project that is creating resources and experiences that enable students on the autism spectrum and their general education peers to engage in the engineering design process as they create 3D printed objects. This project brings together researchers from Education Development Center and SRI International, Maker program developers from NY Hall of Science, autism experts from the ASD Support Project at NYU, and engineering educators at the Tandon School of Engineering at NYU. The group is engaged in a collaborative co-design process with New York City middle school teachers. The team is adapting a NY Hall of Science 3D Design Maker program for use in after school programs and lunch time clubs in NYC middle schools that host autism inclusion programs.
