Making and Learning :: A Hands-On Curriculum

We love to make things. We garden, code, keep bees, sew, weave, build circuits, design websites, and smith metal.  We see the opportunity to create a curriculum that centers around that experience, focusing on the engagement and energy that surrounds the active experience of making.
