Purpose

This book was co-authored with our team at the American School of Bombay and documents the methods, experiences, and structures we created to build a culture around Making. The book spans the work we did K-12 and explores how we developed maker experiences at different skill levels across a multitude of formal/informal programs. There is a sense of progression that is visible in the book showing our journey from inspiration to implementation.

At the time of publication, there were very few resources written from a formal education context for Maker and Constructionist Educators to learn from. In addition to documenting our journey, this book was written with the purpose of equipping educators interested in using this type of pedagogy in their classrooms.
