You will discover a wide variety of activities and example projects that you can employ across curriculum not just in math or science classes. In addition, you will learn how to tie these activities to standards, get started on a budget, and the types of supplies you might want to use. We will also cover how your school can develop a school-wide maker mentality across curriculum.

It was targeted mostly toward media specialists, but the resources, advice, and perspectives were fantastic and made up for that. I loved the idea that the making should not be graded but that the understanding achieved might be if in a class setting.
