Making in Schools
As part of Making Spaces: Expanding Maker Education Across the Nation, a nationwide program supported by Google, the Maker Education Initiative (Maker Ed) and the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh (CMP) are partnering with Scott Family Amazeum to provide local schools with guidance, professional development and support to jumpstart and sustain maker education in classrooms. The Amazeum is excited to be building on the enthusiasm for maker education that is surging across the country and in Arkansas, especially Northwest Arkansas. In particular, Amazeum will tackle the crucial topic of fundraising, working closely with local schools to launch a crowdfunding campaign, which will then help to fund makerspaces and maker programs in these schools.
