Our contribution to the Edurobotics conference 2018 got published right now. According to the title “How to Support Girls’ Participation at Projects in Makerspace Settings“. Overview on Current Recommendations” we did a study with a special view how we can increase the participation of girls in makerspaces.
Abstract:Abstract of the publication
Several biases and thresholds challenge the reach of girls in technology-related activities. For this contribution we collected and structured existing research and good practices on how to reach girls within projects in the field educational robotics, makerspaces, coding and STEM in general. The contribution presents general guidelines for future activities with a potential higher rate of participating girls in makerspace settings.
