This page is a curated collection of resources that the STEAMLabs staff recommend for maker educators!

Maker Ed is a US non-profit organization that provides educators and institutions with the training, resources, and community of support they need to create engaging, inclusive, and motivating learning experiences through maker education. We were a part of their working group to develop a Youth Makerspace Playbook. It starts with the maker education philosophy, and goes in to designing places and activities to support this.

In an effort to build a case in support of the Ontario Education System, I present to you Equity or Bust: Are Ontario Public Schools a Model for Pennsylvania?. I think the system, in many ways, has its flaws but I think our education system sometimes gets unfairly lumped in with the United States'. Despite sharing a border, our policies and trajectory in developing our education system are vastly different. If you have some time, I would recommend going through the series of articles as it lends a point of view that often gets missed by popular media.

Lastly, one of things that I've spoken about and sang praises for ad nauseam is the Institute of Child Study's Lab School. I've been a part of this community for the past 2 years, and I would credit their approach as having the most significant influence in my philosophy and design of programs. They have recently released a short film that describes their program, and I think it's worth a look.
