  2. STEM-Rich Maker Learning: Designing Equity with Youth of Color

    In recent years, maker-centred learning has emerged in schools and other spaces as a promising new phase of STEM education reform. With a sharp focus on equity, the authors investigate community-based STEM-making programs to determine whether, and how, they can address the educational needs of youth of colour. The authors explore what it means for youth to engage in making with the explicit goal of addressing injustices in their lives. The text features longitudinal ethnographic data and compelling examples that show how youth of colour from low-income backgrounds innovate and make usable artefacts to improve their lives and their communities. This book is essential reading for STEM educators in both formal and informal educational settings.

  5. Building a K–12 STEM Lab: A Step-by-Step Guide for School Leaders and Tech Coaches

    Few resources are available for district and school leaders looking to establish successful STEM labs. Frequently, efforts don’t gain traction because they lack a systemic approach and support from a broad spectrum of stakeholders within the school community. Building a K-12 STEM Lab addresses this challenge from the perspective of the leader, identifying opportunities for capacity building and ensuring equal access and equity for all students. The comprehensive and flexible approach outlined in this book will help school and district leaders develop productive community partnerships in support of STEM education within the STEM lab and throughout the school.
