Professional Development

Supporting educators who want to integrate making into their practice is at the heart of what we do. We have a suite of learning opportunities that bring together a combination of in-person and online experiences designed to meet the needs of educators in both formal and informal settings, serving learners of all ages.

Our professional development aims to support educators and their organizations as they integrate maker education into daily practice. Our workshops are hands-on and minds-on. We ask learners to actively participate, with open minds, and approach their experiences with the perspectives of learners in mind.  All of our trainings and workshops include dedicated time for reflection—both from the lens of learner and educator. Our work is deeply rooted in the ongoing practice of our team and our community. As research into maker-centered learning evolves, we continually integrate new findings into our approach.
