Hi, I’m Marten Westerhof

About me.

Hi! I’m Marten, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD Fellow at TU Dublin in the SellSTEM project. In my research I focus on how to help children to develop their Spatial Ability through Maker Education. From my position in the SellSTEM project, I am working with Waag in Amsterdam to develop spatial maker activities.

I earned my BSc. in Industrial Design Engineering and MSc. Design for Interaction degrees at Delft University of Technology. During my thesis project for the latter I developed a playful design education toolkit for Sustainable Rural Initiatives, a non-profit organisation in Western Kenya. It can now be found in its entirety here!
