The project will develop and study an innovative Informal STEM Learning model to engage middle school youth from underrepresented backgrounds in “engineering for sustainable communities,” the abstract states. The primary goals are to support underrepresented youth in developing productive identities in engineering while also learning the hybrid practices that make up engineering for community sustainability.
