While I've worked with kids a lot in making related activities, this is the first time I've started a Maker Club of my own. In the past I've been a regional coordinator for MAKE's Young Maker program and as a profession I teach public middle school. This year I've combined my passions to lead a Maker Club at my school. This presentation will get into the nuts and bolts of running a Maker Club like how to run the meetings, managing supplies and a huge list of tested activities that are sure to be a hit.
