Maker Corps could not be implemented successfully without the commitment and participation of its partners. Maker Corps partner sites are youth-serving organizations, such as science centers, children’s museums, schools, libraries, and community organizations, dedicated to providing children with rich summer making experiences. Our past partner sites have included a diverse mix of organizations ranging from those who are brand new to making, to those who are leaders in the movement, and everything in between! With the support of Maker Ed, each partner site hires and supervises anywhere from one to five summer Maker Corps Members.

Maker Corps 2016 included an international pilot with four international partner sites in three countries.

Here is a map of our Maker Corps 2016 partner sites
