I am a STEM Specialist at the University of Hawai'i System. As a former secondary art and technology teacher, I am particularly interested in exploring how the hands-on use of design-based technologies (e.g. “making” and “makerspaces”, digital fabrication, 3D modeling and printing, computer programming, and robotics) can impact multidisciplinary learning that transcends traditional content contexts. Through my mobile makerspace initiative, The MAKE Lab, I have researched how recurring experiences with these design-based technologies impact visual spatial skills, self-efficacy, and positive attitudes toward failure (e.g. persistence in the face of obstacles; reconceptualization of failure as a paradigm for creative learning) with teachers and K–12 students.
