International Conference of the Learning Science at CU Boulder, June 2014
“Kris Gutiérrez, Lisa Schwartz, and Daniela DiGiacomo, all of the CU-Boulder School of Education, offered innovative approaches to promoting equity in STEM education through a new movement called “Making and Tinkering,” in which students tackle hands-on engineering problems and design their own solutions. Locally, Gutiérrez and Schwartz lead Making and Tinkering programs annually with CU undergraduates and students from Casey Middle School in Boulder. Gutiérrez also designed and directs the weekly El Pueblo Mágico after-school program at Sánchez Elementary School in Lafayette.

“Our Making and Tinkering programs provide a space for CU undergraduates to put learning theory into practice through collaborative activities with Casey and Sánchez students. These programs support undergraduates and children in working together to leverage their everyday knowledge and interests through robust and creative STEM activities,” Schwartz said.
