The Maker Corps took off with its pilot year, with 108 instructors at 34 host sites in 19 states. Here in Philadelphia, we were able to run our Maker Corp program in a unique way; by spreading out 5 instructors in 5 different, alternative locations throughout Philadelphia. In this way, we were able to work with a wide range of students from different, unique neighborhoods, able to produce unique projects from each unique instructor, and ultimately be able to create an entirely unique program. Looking back at this summer, we will explore the program and its meaning to the students and communities it served.
