We want all of our middle schoolers to be makers…

We want all of our middle schoolers to be makers — to feel empowered to design and build useful, interesting things with their hands.

Maryland Public Libraries

FutureMakers helped Maryland Public Libraries establish their current culture of providing customers of all ages with the space and tools to participate in experiential learning.

They have also done numerous workshops, trainings, and learning projects with library staff around the state and at several state-wide library conferences. Thanks in no small part to the wonderful job FutureMakers has done, many public libraries have built or are in the process of building makerspaces and STEM labs for public use, which means that a growing number of Marylanders have access to this critical type of learning.

Young Audiences

Future Makers are always on the cutting edge of educational trends! Their work is a perfect fit for any schools interested in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) programs for their students.

We have received glowing reports from our partner schools who have hosted Future Maker programs for their students. They work diligently to custom design their programs to challenge and inspire young learners.

MOST

MOST has been excited about the potential of the Maker Movement for afterschool and summer programs. Making  offers the  nexus of creativity, technology and the development of the STEM skills like design thinking and problem solving.

Yet, often youth development professionals may not think of themselves as makers and don’t know how to get started. FutureMakers has offered programs in our network an accessible,  entry way in to the world of making  – successfully engaging both youth and adults.
