This curriculum guide is designed as a tool to help teachers in autism inclusion schools facilitate an after-school or lunchtime “Maker Club.” The core belief of this program is that giving students on the autism spectrum a chance to pursue their interests as they engage with peers in the engineering design process will help them gain confidence in their abilities, awareness, and motivation to pursue higher education and careers in engineering and design. The curriculum is meant to be flexible and open to modification depending on the resources and challenges of each school.
