Maker Educator Bootcamp

August 6, 2019 - August 9, 2019

August 6 – August 9, 2019
6 Allegheny Square East, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Maker Educator Boot Camp will be held at Museum Lab, the new museum for older kids located next door to the Children’s Museum.
Cost: $900

Join the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh for research-based workshops on the forms of making, maker learning, and more!

Developed through years of experience and research in the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh’s MAKESHOP, Boot Camp emphasizes that maker education is about more than a space and the right tools.

Participants will:

  • Work in individual and group settings for both hands-on activities and discussions
  • Attend four process-focused workshops, designed to give both practical and theoretical insight into different forms of making
  • Use both MAKESHOP’s Principles of Practice and other research tools to delve deeply into the learning that happens through making
  • Use visioning tools designed by the Museum’s learning and research department to inform institutional direction as it relates to making
