Education at Maker Faire Milwaukee

Making is transforming education at every level.

When we talk about making in education, we are talking about project-based learning, a teaching method that emphasizes problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration and self-guided inquiry along with standards-based content.

We invite classroom teachers, administrators and others in the field to join us for our 2nd annual Making in Education conference, designed to share information, skills and strategies to encourage project-based learning in schools, libraries or other learning spaces.

We invite classroom teachers, administrators and others in the field to join us to share information, skills and strategies to encourage project-based learning in schools, libraries and other learning spaces.
