Nedlam's Workshop

NSF Awards: 1450985

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

We describe Nedlam’s Workshop, a unique university-high school partnership investigating how to enable diverse populations of high school aged youth to engage in inquiry through making. School practitioners are curious about how to bring ideas and practices from the maker movement into school. While educators’ curiosities often focus on which technologies to purchase (e.g., 3D printers), the challenge, and the promise, of integrating making and schooling lies in understanding how to bring the maker-directed, inquiry-rich practices of engineering, arts, and computing into the classroom. Through a combination of formal (in-school) and informal (after-school) environment and course design, teacher professional development, and community partnership, we are investigating how making and schooling can be productively integrated to afford creatively rich learning experiences for all students.
