About this Artist
FutureMakers provides young innovators and educators the highest quality coaches, tools, and materials that challenge them to design, build, reflect and grow as makers.
FutureMakers transforms school, library and community learning spaces into future fabrication labs. Bending the boundaries of art and technology, young makers activate a mobile makerspace stocked with traditional and cutting edge tools – from woodworking and machine sewing to 3-D printing and physical computing – to dream, design and build big. Led by a team of seasoned, STEAM-driven maker-educators, FutureMakers believes kids need tools, not just toys.
"You could see the joy of learning in the eyes of children as they explored and investigated that tools to create, problem solve and invent unique robots. The quest for inquiry was engaging and the creativity ignited a unique skill-set for all students. Our students gained a deeper sense of agency throughout this experience. Now, instead of "maybe I can" they say, "I CAN do that!" "
“Great hands-on STEAM project. It got everyone involved!”
Emma K. Doub Elementary
“I was looking for ways to make learning tangible in my classroom.
I wanted a transdisciplinary project that would engage my
students and plug into my existing curriculum without replacing
it. FutureMakers met all of these expectations and more.”
Andria, Teacher, Harford County Public Schools
