Mission Statement

The Maker Education Initiative’s mission is to create more opportunities for all young people to develop confidence, creativity, and interest in science, technology, engineering, math, art, and learning as a whole through making.

Description

In May 2012, Maker Ed was formed in response to President Obama’s "Educate to Innovate" campaign to move American students from the middle to the top of the pack in science and math achievement over the next decade. Maker Ed plays a national leadership role in developing a maker network of institutions, youth serving organizations, statewide afterschool networks, corporations, foundations, and makers seeking to accelerate and deepen the Maker Movement.

Maker Ed is a non-profit organization, based in Oakland, CA, and works with educators and organizations nationwide to provide training, support, resources, and community-building efforts in order to facilitate meaningful making and learning experiences with youth.
