Shoot for the Moon! the Mentors and the Middle Schoolers Explore the Intersection of Design Thinking and STEM
Carroll, Maureen P.
Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, v4 n1 Article 3 p14-30 2014
This paper describes the journey of a group of university students as they worked with underserved middle school students as mentors in a STEM-based afterschool program. Design thinking provided a frame within which students learned how to be mentors, how to create user-centered learning experiences, and how to share their experiences as developing STEM professionals with middle school students.
