Maker projects across the curriculum - empower and inspire all students with access to STEM
Presented by: MIT Edgerton Center
Maker projects are student-centered educational projects that incorporate 21st century skills and modern technologies (3D printing, laser/vinyl cutting, physical computing, electronics, etc.)
Find out how using Maker projects in any academic classroom can help your students become empowered learners and interested in pursuing STEM fields. We will display and share:
- a range of Maker Projects samples that demonstrate how students in all academic classes can get access to STEM tools and practices. Projects were developed by teachers in our collaborating schools.
- our Maker Methodology (available free on our website) which supports K-12 educators in designing and implementing Maker projects in academic or technical classes.
- an activity with electronics and a vinyl cutter that visitors can investigate and make some samples to take away.
- opportunities for educators to learn how to use a variety of Maker tools in the classroom and become skilled in designing and leading Maker projects.
