Making Equity: A Day Long Pop-Up Makerspace for Elementary Youth in Northern Colorado

“Making Equity” is a free event on August 10 at Colorado State University for 4th-8th graders and their families. Planned and co-facilitated with a diverse group of fourth-graders and co-sponsored by the CSU Writing Project and the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, the event will be guided by the principles of making and connected learning. Approximately 100 participants will engage in hands-on activities intended to deepen understanding of the intersections between civic literacies, multimodal practices, and the marginalized history of Latinos in Northern Colorado.
