Colin Dixon holds a Ph.D. in Learning & Mind Sciences from the University of California, Davis. He researches the development of STEM practices and agency among young people creating things to use and share with the world. He writes about equity and identity in making and engineering, the role of community in science learning, and how youth leverage interests and experiences within STEM education.
Corey Schimpf is a Learning Analytics Scientist with interest in design research, learning analytics, research
methods and under-representation in engineering, A major strand of his work focuses on developing
and analyzing learning analytics that model students’ cognitive states or strategies through fine-grained
computer-logged data from open-ended technology-centered science and engineering projects. His dissertation
research explored the use of Minecraft to teach early engineering college students about the design
