Abstract

This symposium seeks to address how various digital fabrication technologies can be integrated for authentic experiential learning that nurtures creativity and fosters the development of multidisciplinary connections. With the unique ability to break down the traditional boundaries between disciplines, digital fabrication technology supports experiential learning by providing an opportunity for students to learn by design as they employ a variety of trans-disciplinary skills. This symposium will include a diverse group of presentations that will discuss experiences that integrated digital fabrication technologies to create mathematically musical instruments, weave engineering design into science teaching, explore accessible high-tech design with open-source 3D printers and computing devices, facilitate positive changes in STEM attitudes and skills of pre-service teachers and students, and facilitate a unique community of practice within a makerspace at a secondary school.
