Abstract


The FabLab Construction Station will allow second grade teachers and students to design and fabricate 2D and 3D geometric shapes, bulletin boards, paper airplanes, pop-ups, and other materials. Student outcomes will include improved math and engineering knowledge in topics including shapes, geometry, pre-algebra, and measurement. Curricular materials for teachers will be designed to integrate the product within existing practice to be developed. Phase I work will develop a prototype of the intervention.
