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 interdisciplinary skills, such as spatial skills and 21st century 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 by both cognitive and socio-cultural perspectives on learning and thus employs a variety of both qualitative and quantitative methods.
