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.
