Making In Schools: Envisioning and Sustaining Making In Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2016, the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and Maker Ed joined together to create Making Spaces: Expanding Making in Schools Across the Nation, which aims to develop a national strategy to sustainably integrate making into schools across the country. The Making Spaces program employs an innovative model where a Regional Hub (such as a school district, library, museum, or community organization) works closely with 5-10 local schools to help jumpstart and sustain maker education in classrooms through crowdfunding, professional development, and community engagement. An accompanying toolkit of resources supports hubs and schools during their 2 years of planning and implementation. In this facilitated hands-on workshop, participants will leverage two of the tools to create concise, vibrant, and compelling visions for their maker-centered learning efforts, spaces, and culture.
