Explore how students become engaged with scientific and engineering practices in the Sanger Community Science Workshop, a free drop-in science workshop offered during out-of-school time. Students become 'Makers' and develop a project vision, and then work to realize that vision using a modified engineering design process. nParticipants will build simple projects from recycled materials while learning how to effectively teach and model science and engineering practices. Examples will be also be modeled and highlighted showing the intersection between making and the Next Generation Science Standards.
