Have you heard of the Maker Party? It has nothing to do with politics! The Maker Party is an initiative hosted by Mozilla, the MacArthur Foundation and the National Writing Project in which people around the world meet up, learn to make things, and share what they've made online. This PBS LearningMedia collection supports the Maker Party mission by providing STEM and digital making resources that focus on the problem, technology or process behind object creation.
Teachers can use the collection (which is categorized into design, how-to (DIY), arts and crafts, robotics and engineering subtopics) in conjunction with hands-on activities to enhance learning. Once your students have created their project, encourage them to use the Storyboard tool at PBSStudents.org to illustrate what they made! EXPLORE: http://to.pbs.org/1qlqp66
