As institutions contribute text and multimedia documentation detailing their institution’s engagement with the “Maker movement”, the online portal will create a network between the diversity of initiatives, people, spaces, success stories, and approaches demonstrated across the nation. MakeSchools.org is here to create a dynamic resource that highlights the Maker community and will expand and grow with your ideas.
Participating also creates the following opportunities for your institution:
It creates national visibility for the work, impact and successes of Making on your campus;
It creates synergistic opportunities for you to connect with other Makers and schools that are Making;
It provides potential for your school to support Making on other campuses by sharing best practices and guidelines;
It helps gain recognition for the impact and innovation that Making creates and serves as a resource to foster interest from funders, agencies, and other interested parties.
