Mind, Matter & Media Lab

The Mind, Matter & Media Lab (M3Lab) is a Learning Sciences research lab at the University of Calgary's Werklund School of Education, Canada. Our work is at the intersection of critical theories, computational science, complexity and STEM education. We build, design and study environments and spaces that challenge typical notions about computation and science and work to create a broadened sense of publicness, ownership and participation.
