Shoot For The Moon! The Mentors and the Middle Schoolers Explore the Intersection of Design Thinking and STEM

Description

This paper describes the journey of a group of university students as they worked with underserved middle school students as mentors in a STEM-based afterschool program. Design thinking provided a frame within which students learned how to be mentors, how to create user-centered learning experiences, and how to share their experiences as developing STEM professionals with middle school students.
