Research to focus on family's role in supporting STEM interest and careers

Adam Maltese

A project led by an Indiana University School of Education researcher will help families incorporate engineering and "making" activities in their homes -- potentially a step toward promoting interest in STEM and awareness of science and technology careers. 

"The hope with this project is to engage families in engineering and making to empower them to design and build solutions to challenges they face in their homes and communities," said Adam Maltese, principal investigator for the project and associate professor of science education. "Through this, we hope they are exposed to the diverse opportunities that they might pursue with STEM."
