Drawing from speculative design, Black Feminist and Womanist theories, this talk will present an innovative pedagogy Shaw calls "restorying through design", as an approach to engage youth in both interrogating and reimagining cultures or “codes'' of power in STEAM education through designing interactive physical artifacts (i.e., quilt patches as inspired by Black women’s quiltmaking practices).
