Abstract

Two technology association—SITE and ITEEA—and two mathematics education associations—AMTE and NCTM—recently began a joint exploration of methods for identifying natural connections between mathematics and engineering design in the elementary curriculum. The working notes that follow offer a preliminary consideration of methods for employing an emergent technology—digital fabrication—as a mechanism for integrating the STEM disciplines in elementary classrooms and children’s engineering as a pedagogical approach for doing so. Personal digital fabrication may lie at the heart of the next technological revolution. It can allow young people to create, build, and invent in the context of engineering design. However, successful implementation in schools will require thoughtful integration with the existing curriculum.
