Developed through years of experience and research in the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh’s MAKESHOP, Boot Camp emphasizes that maker education is about more than a space and the right tools.

Participants will:

  • Work in individual and group settings for both hands-on activities and discussions
  • Attend four process-focused workshops, designed to give both practical and theoretical insight into different forms of making
  • Use both MAKESHOP’s Principles of Practice and other research tools to delve deeply into the learning that happens through making
  • Use visioning tools designed by the Museum’s learning and research department to inform institutional direction as it relates to making
