Maker Projects and Workshops

Makerspace Playbook from Maker Media outlines two basic types of maker projects: exploratory workshops where students learn basic engineering and building skills through a sampling of brief activities, and applied projects that involve multiple disciplines and drive students to extend their basic skills. Within those two categories, there are plenty of different ways to structure tinkering time—from design challenges and make-and-takes to portfolio projects and freeform making. By incorporating a variety of different types of activities into an afterschool club, teachers can keep students engaged in tinkering while helping them unleash their creativity.
