This research aims to analyze the authorship process of students from public schools attended by students of the popular classes regarding their experience in the scope of the Fab Lab Livre SP project, under the influence of the Maker's Movement, with a view to the production of physical- Digital images. It is considered that this process of production influences the scientific-technological appropriations of the students who participate in this project, opening possibilities for transformation and overcoming of established realities. The purpose of the proposal is to contribute with elements on author development and the formative process of students of popular education. The main methodological procedures are: bibliographic surveys on the use of new digital technologies in education, as well as on the Maker Movement in education, and a field research in the Fab Lab Livre SP project, using several instruments to Obtaining information such as field notes, photographs, footage, documents and databases produced physically and digitally, in addition to questionnaires and interviews. The main hypothesis is that the existing digital culture in the Maker Movement allows the formation and constitution of the young people who, in addition to being connected to the technological advance, become agents stimulated to the author's production. We assume that education is committed to transforming realities, empowering individuals, improving and creating spaces that socially and culturally value subjects so that they can question the world and make changes, challenge their reality and create solutions. The research has as main theoretical references the works of Paulo Freire, Inés Dussel and Manuel Castells. (AU)
