How can we engage students through the design and use of STEM learning spaces across grades K through 12? This session is centered on a presentation of initial findings of a review of best practices for K-12 STEM learning spaces commissioned by the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA). The review is looking at K-12 academic STEM learning spaces, including elementary classrooms, science labs, and makerspaces, to provide recommendations for the sizing, configuration, outfitting, management, maintenance, and use of STEM learning spaces. Panelists will reflect on the importance of thoughtful STEM space design, the affordances and limitations of design for STEM learning opportunities and programming, and potential implications of initial findings. Participants will consider and reflect on how their STEM space design enables or limits local STEM programming and goals.
