Assessing Computational Thinking in Maker Activities (ACTMA)

NSF Awards: 1543124

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

The Assessing Computation Thinking in Making Activities (ACTMA) project aims to create embedded, adaptive, and culturally unbiased activities and formative assessments of computational thinking (CT) in STEM that can be used in informal learning spaces such as makerspaces, but can also be brought into more formal physics classroom experiences. Our 2-week summer program brought 20 students together to pilot our activities and assessments created thus far in the project. Now that the formal teachers have implemented the activities in their classrooms, we will begin iterating on the summer activities and preparing for a second summer academy with formal teachers as the lead facilitators.
