Maker Party, was an initiative hosted by Mozilla, the MacArthur Foundation, and the National Writing Project in which people around the world met up, learned to make things, and shared what they’d made online. This PBS LearningMedia collection is designed to support the Maker Party by providing a one-stop shop of STEM and digital making resources that focus on the problem, technology, or process behind object creation.

Teachers can use the collection, which is categorized into design, how to (DIY), arts and crafts, robotics, and engineering subtopics, in conjunction with hands-on activities to further this initiative. Like the Maker Party, this collection is designed to encourage hands-on engagement in science, technology, engineering, math, and the arts.

This collection was designed and curated by Erik Rosas in August 2013, the summer before his senior year at the Hudson High School for Learning Technologies in New York City. A “maker” himself, Erik is a participant in MOUSE Corps, an afterschool design and technology program that develops emerging leadership and professional skills of select high school students from across NYC.
