Designing Making Experiences is a two-day intensive professional development workshop for educators eager to integrate making in school into their own practice.

Spend two days planning a K-12 making project or unit of your choice and leave with a project example made by you. While being immersed in a making environment, you will make and develop, test and troubleshoot the making curriculum or project of your choice for your K-12 classroom or school.

Participants will:

  • Learn about ways making can be integrated into classrooms, schools and curricula
  • Collaborate with participants and Creativity Lab staff to plan a project or unit for your classroom or school
  • Learn new skills, technologies, and/or making methods to complement your project, including 3-D printing, laser cutting, woodworking, craft, electronics, and vinyl cutting
  • Collaborate with like-minded educators to develop making curriculum
