S.D. 60 Maker Club for Educators Training

Calling all passionate CREATORS, DOERS and MAKERS!

Are you the type of worker who likes to take a step back after toiling away at a thing to marvel at what you’ve literally created and accomplished?

Learn about the global Maker Movement & Maker Faire and try your hand at a needle felting + woodwork workshop to develop skills for an activity you can take back to your own classroom.

Learn about how to implement a Maker Club at your location to help enrich the available extracurricular offerings and deepen a school-wide culture of Making.
