Maker Educator Boot Camp is a four-day professional development experience for classroom teachers, informal educators and museum professionals who seek a deep understanding of the philosophy and practice of making.

Developed through years of experience and research in the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh's MAKESHOP, Boot Camp emphasizes that maker education is about more than a space and the right tools. Participants will explore the processes, materials, and approach of successful maker education and the means to bring these back to their classroom or learning center.


All Maker Educator Boot Camps are designed to be four-day experiences, with each day running from 9am to 4pm. Participants are expected to plan their schedules in order to attend the entirety of the professional development.

All events will be held at Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, on Pittsburgh's historic North Side:

10 Children's Way
Pittsburgh, PA 15207
