What is Making?


Making is an act of causing, constituting, or constructing something. The idea behind making is that it is a creative process that is free of constraints. The process of making allows people to experiment, ask questions, and test their ideas. It also creates opportunities for collaboration and fast improvement. While formal K-12 education is highly structured and results in a well-rounded student, maker projects are playful, open-ended, and encourage students to express their newfound skills.
