Designerly play has been identified as a fundamental component of childhood learning.  However, as students enter grade one and beyond, the increasing academic focus has resulted in the loss of opportunities for designerly play.  At the same time, there are increasing calls to increase the number, skill, and diversity of STEM workers.  The robotics based Elementary Engineering Curriculum (Heffernan, 2013) - used by students in this study - and other similar projects have the potential to increase the STEM pipeline but elementary engineering is not well-understood. The speaker researched how to teach engineering to students as their cognitive, motor, and social skills rapidly develop in elementary school.
