Moderator Jessica Parker and Bay Area maker educators discuss the role of making in their K-12 settings and how to maintain a culture of making within a formal, school-based environment. Learn how they started making with students and how they developed robust programs that foster hands-on, interdisciplinary maker projects and events which successfully support student learning. (Part one of a two-part series)
