Maker Skills Workshop Interest Survey
Maker Workshops for K12 Educators held at the MIT Edgerton Center last year were very successful, providing participants with the skills and resources they needed for using Maker tools and materials effectively in their schools. We are looking into offering these workshops as well as some new ones.
Please share your thoughts on this Workshop Interest Survey and help us better understand the needs of the community.
