What is 1st Maker Space?

About 1st MAKERSPACE

We build MakerSpaces for S.T.E.A.M. Enrichment

1st Maker Space, LLC builds in-school & library makerspaces, and produces after-school and inter-session STEAM enrichment programs. We employ educators, engineers, artists, designers and content experts to develop curriculum and create environments that inspire ‘thinkering.’ We partner with school districts to provide students with standards-based hands-on learning experiences to complement in-classroom learning strategies.

We utilize Project Based Learning teaching methods to deliver highly effective lessons in an authentic, rigorous and motivational environment. Students use 21st century tools like 3D printers, laser cutters and microcontrollers to solve real problems. We emphasize creativity, collaboration and critical thinking.  

Time Magazine has called the "maker movement" important to America’s future.  We believe it is important to the future of America’s children too. With an emphasis on 21st century skills and thinking outside the box, a makerspace helps children discover a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime.

From 3D printing to wearables, 1st Maker Space is empowering kids to make something!
