Making Space for Equity: Student Initiated Pathways

Feedback form is now closed.
There is a challenge to exposing relevant STEM and engineering experiences to students in diverse environments. We recognize that students utilize different learning modalities when approaching equally different learning zones with a diverse amount of passion, engagement, and aptitude. We believe that students deserve an equitable entry point into the world of innovation and technology.

In this session, we will dive into the practices of student initiated pathways and student voice entering the world of making and fabrication in terms of an equitable approach to exposure and leveraging the model of the Public Museum School including community partnerships and place-based design.

Note: Grand Rapids Public Museum School, located within the Grand Rapids Public Museum, believes that the entire community is a classroom and that schools can help drive community revitalization and civic engagement. The school aims to pair foundational learning with experiential learning, as students engage with city archives and museum resources for research and projects addressing real-world issues and challenges.
