We will discuss effective strategies to use when facilitating engineering design challenges and best practices for culturally responsive facilitation when working with students, their families, or partner organizations. These strategies were collected through developing and implementing a 4-year NSF-funded project aimed at increasing girls’ interest and enjoyment of engineering experiences.
