Modes of making: exploration, engineering, and entrepreneurship
From creativity and expression to job training and entrepreneurship, maker learning is what you make of it.
Maker Manager: Catching Up With Rebecca Grabman
In October 2011 the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh opened MAKESHOP — an exhibit space where kids and adults can tinker with tools, physical materials, and the latest in digital media. As one of the country’s first museum-based makerspaces, MAKESHOP has become a national model for museums around the country. Rebecca Grabman has been at MAKESHOP since the beginning, rising in the ranks from summer intern to manager. Grabman grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, and has a master’s degree in entertainment technology from Carnegie Mellon.
