Projects and Tools for Making

The nonprofit Maker Education Initiative in Oakland, California, supports educators and communities—particularly those in underserved areas—to facilitate meaningful making and learning experiences with youth. The “Getting Started” section of the Maker Ed website provides a set of curated, introductory resources for those new to making or interested in learning more about making and its potential impact in education. It also provides practical, concrete ways for integrating making into educational settings. The “Tools & Materials” section contains lists and examples of useful tools and materials for making activities and makerspaces, including suggestions for consumables, hardware, machines, open source software, and other technologies. This section also offers guidance or tutorials on specific tools or skills. The “Projects & Learning Approaches” section includes a wide variety of information to provide educators and facilitators with ideas for short-term activities, as well as open-ended, long-term projects, curriculum samples, examples of facilitation methods and practices, and the pedagogies and values aligned with making.
