In the winter of 2013, NOVA began recruiting STEM educators from across the country for a project wherein participants would use a social media platform to collaborate on the delivery of a set of hands-on maker projects designed for middle school aged learners.

Start with $500 and a Power Wheel. (Or any electric kids' ride on vehicle.) Get some new batteries. A new motor. Heck, some nice new tires. Tie LEDs to the hood. Sprinkle it with glitter. Maybe a feather for class.
Finally, a powerful programmable system for the average Joe! Electronics are seamlessly connected. Create programs via intuitive drag-and-drop visual icons. Have fun building your project instead of figuring out how to!

We are designing the first Makerspace in a Children's Hospital.This novel,mobile, maker environment not only provides patients with creative outlets & learning opportunities,but also an occasion for the hospital to explore new avenues in patient care.The Mobile Makerspace meets health,safety & accessibility requirements of the children.Its philosophy is rooted in understanding the unique needs of patients & families,and in constructivist educational approaches.By sharing compelling stories of child-centered making & problem-solving in the hospital,we hope to inspire other hospitals with space restrictions to create and use Mobile Makerspaces.
To raise the next generation of Makers, we must learn how to 'carve out time' from our busy lives for deliberate play and purposeful making. In this short 25 minute presentation, those who influence the lives of our youngest makers, will be equipped, enabled, and inspired to carve our own time and stamp their mark on the timeline of history.
Program Details:nInstructables partners with companies that makes cool products (past partners include: Sugru, Bare Conductive, Lumi, Cool Neon Jameco, and Voltaic Systems) and put together boxes of materials to send to makerspaces around the world. Each space holds a workshop where they make projects with the materials. We've hosted build nights in over 30 countries with over 2,000 participants. The build nights have brought in over 300 new Instructables.
