As part of the national Week of Making, Maker Ed, Digital Promise, and AASA, The School Superintendents Association launched a campaign to gather commitments from school leaders to expand making in districts and schools across the nation. Through this campaign, more than 100 school administrators reaching more than 3 million students committed their support for maker education.
A diverse group of K-12 schools and districts — including traditional public, private, parochial, charter schools — signed a letter to the President committing to take concrete steps to empower students to learn through making, expand access to makerspaces, and offer support for educators to integrate making into their classrooms. Additionally, many schools and districts submitted their own personalized letters of commitment, outlining the specific steps they will take to create meaningful making experiences for youth.
