The following posters were part of a session at the 2018 American Educational Research Association Annual Conference in New York, New York. While the group of posters together is the result of the conference, each of the posters is from the independent research groups of conference attendees and reflect conference attendees’ work at the intersection of equity, literacy, and engineering/making.  

They are presented in alphabetical order by the titles. Click on a thumbnail to make it larger. Please see authors for more information about their work.
