Abstract This commentary responds to the seven articles in this issue by reading them through lenses of tinkering and tailoring, juxtaposing and extending them with other writings across a range of fields.Disrupting and displacing methodologies in science education is not something new. There are multiple examples from two and more decades ago where science educators and researchers have drawn attention to the need to approach science education research and pedagogy differently. However, the authors in thisSpecial Issue have worked from different theories in their efforts to go beyond tinkering and tailoring and re-de/sign methodologies in STEM education. We are inspired by the contributions and hope that these new approaches will achieve the changes that have eluded many similar arguments in the past.
