Educators: How to Launch Your First Maker Program

You spoke and we listened! After working hand-in-hand with educators like you, who want to launch a Maker Program but “just don’t know where to start,” we’ve developed this free and easy-to-use guide.
It's packed with fun activities, tons of projects, professional development resources, and tips and tricks – it’s all here for you!

Your Maker Program Starter Kit is live and ready for download on http://www.makingstartshere.com/teach/.
This kit provides all the activities and resources needed to bring making into K-12 classrooms, libraries, after-school programs – anywhere making thrives. 

Why a Maker Program Starter Kit?

  • Starting out is the hardest part! Time and time again we heard teachers frustrated by wanting to implement making but not sure where to start. 
  • Our goal is to provide all educators an easy-to-use set of instructions. This opens up more time in the class to focus on connections between making, design, creativity, and learning.

What’s unique about the Starter Kit?

  • Our content moves beyond theory and into practice by providing hands-on activities, content and resources that enable educators to confidently answer the question “How do I get started?”
  •  Customizable activity templates are downloadable via Google docs as Open Educational Resources (OER)
