School Based Services 

WhyMaker offers coaching and small group support for STEM and Maker Ed teachers.

These sessions work similar to Professional Learning Communities (PLC). Teachers learn from one another while thinking about resources and instructional strategies that will be helpful to their remote teaching.

This transition definitely can feel challenging for all teachers, but it likely feels especially challenging for those who rely on the physical technology and resources in their makerspaces. If you think of this challenge as an opportunity, we are confident your students will surprise you. This is the time to practice what we preach. Think creatively, embrace technology, and create something incredible! Read More on our Thought Book Post.
