|Abstract:||In an increasingly technological world of constant change, encouraging the development of skills such as creativity is becoming increasingly important. In this sense, Creative Learning and Maker Movement can be explored to enrich the learning process in subjects such as science, mathematics and computing. In this paper we explore and discuss the use of electronic components to create physical objects in support for science teaching. We investigate how children and their teachers make sense of the technological concepts and aspects involved in the object’s construction. We carried out eight Workshops where we worked out four different scenarios. At the end of each Workshop, the children and teachers assessed their affective states regarding the activities. In general, children were very happy and motivated with the maker activities, but not all of them felt in control of the activity. Teachers showed less motivation in the activities whose construction was more elaborate, and showed less control, suggesting that the technological aspects are still a challenge for them|
