Spotlight on Creative Reuse

“Spotlight on…” is a blog series by Maker Corps, a program of Maker Ed that provides training and a community of support to youth-serving organizations as they design and implement summer maker education programming. This series will feature a variety of topics related to making, and highlight some of our Maker Corps partners who are leaders in the field. This is the first installation of the series.
