DIY is an online site that has been equated to scouting because you can earn digital patches for learning various skills. To earn patches, an account has to be created, and there is a social network component, kids share their projects on the site. You can explore the patches without creating an account.
An online site with tutorials that teach you how to make just about anything. A great starting point, but make sure to try it out before using it with a class. Some instructables need a little tweaking.
Dale Dougherty, founder of Make Media invented the term “makerspace”. If you do not subscribe to Make magazine, I would highly recommend it. The online companion site includes tested projects, tool guides and at the bottom a link to information about Maker Faire.
Make: Makerspace Directory
Another Make Media link. There is no better way to learn about makerspaces than to go check some out! You can search this directory for a makerspace near you. You can also add your makerspace to the directory.
So many amazing resources here! Suggested tools with how-to guides, tutorials, projects and more.
MIT Edgerton Center
The MIT Edgerton Center has a ton of wonderful K-12 makerspace resources. Under “Operations” the “Tools and Materials” section is particularly useful, especially if you’re just starting out or looking at expanding your makerspace.
