The focus of this dissertation is the outcomes and implementation of the FabNet Invention Kits, a series of science and engineering modules which encourage hands-on teaching and learning. Teachers use project-based learning pedagogy while students build tangible representations of a seminal historical invention. The first two manuscripts explore the learning outcomes of the speaker invention kit and the solenoid invention kit respectively. The third manuscript describes the implementation of the Invention Kits by two middle school teachers.
