"WhyMaker was able to review the curriculum and see many opportunities that students were missing..."


"We hired WhyMaker to look at our district wide curriculum to see where we could infuse more Maker Education for our students. WhyMaker was able to review the curriculum and see many opportunities we were missing. This included building projects that aligned our 10th grader geometry class with their computer coding class that evolved into design business cards for a local nonprofit. We also were able to align the 3rd graders unit on ancient civilizations and the 6th grade unit on ancient Egypt to design and build a replica of the ancient city of Memphis while making the city accessible for people with physical disabilities. WhyMaker designed and built a maker space that served the needs of all of our students in the middle school. The new Makerspace has 3d printers, laser cutters, electronics kits, computers, poster printers, craft supplies and so much more. A robotics team is run out of the maker space now and competes at multiple competitions throughout the year.”
