Abstract

Making and computer science are fast becoming a part of the educational experience of youth growing up today. At the outset of a new decade, it is important to take pause to think critically about where we are and where we want to go. In order to realize our desired vision for the future of computer science and Maker education, the seeds must be planted today. The goal of this symposium is to bring together computer science and Maker education researchers to lay out a vision for where we hope to see these fields go over the course of the next decade. Each presenter in this session will share work currently underway and discuss how it helps set us on a path towards realizing these visions. In doing so, we seek to set an aspirational agenda and position the Learning Sciences at the forefront of defining the future of computer science and Maker education.
