What does it mean to be a maker for somebody who hasn't yet learned how to hold a pencil, much less a soldering iron? Rebecca Grabman, MAKESHOP Manager at Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, will talk about what ''making'' means with young children, giving examples of different contexts including families in informal scenarios, partnerships with local pre-K and Kindergarten classes, professional development opportunities for teachers, and work with educational media producers. MAKESHOP's practice is rooted in both formal research and practical facilitation.
