You’ve got a class full of kids, tools and materials, lots of enthusiasm, and you’re ready to make—now what?! Join us to explore our Maker Methodology planning tools, designed specifically to help core subject teachers plan student-centered maker experiences:

The Maker Methodology is the result of a year-long partnership between the MIT Edgerton Center and 15 K-12 schools, from sites with established makerspaces to sites that are still shopping for their first 3D printer. Working together, we developed and tested tools for designing and planning. The result is a teacher-friendly process and resource bank for designing and leading maker projects.

Use our Maker Methodology tools to plan projects that will engage and empower your students. Browse our Ideabank of adaptable maker projects for inspiration. Learn best practices from stories of core teachers and their successful maker projects. Get and swap strategies for creating a maker mindset in your school.
