We’re not just about the making, we’re also about making a difference. Our outreach programs support both youth and teachers across Atlanta through innovative hands-on making experiences. By developing both the hard skills (how to use a soldering iron or create a digital design) as well as the soft skills (creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, perseverance, risk-taking and adaptability), young makers build confidence and feel empowered to find their passions that can change their lives.

MakerEd Making Spaces Program

The Making Spaces Program, supported by Cognizant and Google, is a Research Practice Partnership led by MakerEd and Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh (CMP) with educational institutions across the nation, and has an ambitious goal to sustainably incorporate making into learning environments across the country. Over this 30-month program, we will become a regional hub supporting maker-led education with 5-10 sites (schools, non-profits, libraries, museums, etc) that we choose, particularly looking to support underserved communities and Title 1 schools as part of our site selection.
