This week is the the National Week of Making, a time to celebrate makers around the country. Last year, we announced that administrators representing over 1400 schools had signed the Maker Promise, the pledge to bring quality making experiences to schools all over the country. In the year since that announcement, we have focused on growing the network of signers, engaging with the community, and learning how we can provide the resources and support necessary to fulfill the Promise. With help from maker champions who participated in interviews and surveys, we gained perspective on the current state of making in schools. From challenges which make it difficult to implement maker learning to the types of resources needed, the information that champions shared have helped shaped our work for the future. As we enter another year of working to fulfill the promise of maker learning, we have taken time to reflect on this past year, share key findings from our work, and announce our goals for the next year in our first annual report.
