Research InterestsMy research examines ways to engage students in STEM learning through arts-integration and hands-on making, tinkering, and engineering design activities. In the context of these activities, I examine what students learn, with a particular focus on meta-disciplinary skills, such as spatial skills. I also study how student interests shape learning, and how interest-driven, informal learning activities, such as making and tinkering activities, might be moved into schools to increase STEM engagement and participation. My work is informed primarily by distributed cognition and constructionism. Thus, my primary methodological approaches are cognitive ethnography and design-based research. However, I've also done work employing a variety of other qualitative and quantitative methods.
