Have you heard of the Maker Party?
The Maker Party is an initiative hosted by Mozilla, the MacArthur Foundation and the National Writing
Project in which people around the world meet up, learn to make things, and share
what they've made online. This PBS LearningMedia collection supports the Maker Party
mission by providing STEM and digital making resources that focus on the problem,
technology or process behind object creation.
You can use the collection (categorized into design, how-to (DIY), arts
and crafts, robotics and engineering subtopics) in conjunction with hands-on activities
Once your students have created their project, encourage them
to use the Storyboard tool at PBSStudents.org to illustrate what they made! EXPLORE:
