In 2016, the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and Maker Ed joined together to create "Making Spaces: Expanding Maker Education Across the Nation." This program focuses on building the maker education movement by connecting educational institutions within a local region to develop sustainable making programs through networked professional development, community engagement, and capacity building.  

This session will present an overview of the Making Spaces program, present different ways in which Hubs and Sites have worked together, and provide time for participants to think through and discuss partnerships and visioning strategies.
