As the first participant in Georgia and the third in the Southeast, Decatur Makers is growing its support of educators working with K-12 students after being accepted as a regional hub in the national MakerEd “Making Spaces” program. Woot Woot!
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 be growing our current youth and teacher STEAM outreach programming to incorporate maker-led education into schools and other organizations supporting K-12 education in the local Atlanta area through professional development, planning and funding support, and evaluation processes. Long term, we hope to support schools and organizations across Georgia. #makersgonnamake #STEAMeducation
