The mission of today’s science, technology, and engineering space initiatives: Attract people, engage them, and leave them longing to come back. The key ingredient in your plans should be sticky spaces: Informal and social learning places students seek out, make their own, and populate around the clock. Using data, lessons learned, and student feedback from recent projects, session leaders deliver best practices for programming sticky spaces, and key functional and psychological design elements for individual learners and small groups. They examine the effects of visibility, transparency, circulation patterns, privacy, and group dynamics, and the amenities that keep student spaces populated and active.
