All of our programs, projects and experiments are designed with the goal of learning something that will be of value to kids, educators or the community at large. We run the gamut from qualitative ethnographic case studies to quantitative experimental designs. Check out our work so far!
As part of our work focused on after school programming, we partnered with an elementary school in the greater Seattle area to run a Lego building club for early elementary students (kindergarten and first grade) and a Lego Robotics club for intermediate elementary students (grades 4, 5 and 6). This report covers what the students learned from the programs and directions for future research in this area.
Throughout the fall of the 2016-2017 school year, foundry10 ran robotics programs in a two schools around Seattle: The Nova Project and Seattle Girl’s School. This report covers what we learned from these programs with regards to student confidence with technology, positive risk-taking, and career interest in technology-related fields.
