WT Announces New Maker-Ed Program for Pittsburgh Area Educators

Calling all Pittsburgh area Maker Educators: Did you ever wonder what students are capable of when they are motivated to help others? Is your STEAM program looking for opportunities to highlight student work? Are you looking to differentiate your classroom by incorporating aspects of Making, Engineering, and Design? Are you looking to get the most out of your Makerspace?

Winchester Thurston School is pleased to announce Design to Make a Difference (D2MD), a new program that combines Maker-Education with altruism in a product-based learning format. The program strives to be inclusive, celebrate the thriving Maker-Ed programs of Pittsburgh, and provide opportunities for educators and students looking to improve their practice.

Design to Make a Differences challenges middle and high school teams from the Greater Pittsburgh Area to create a product that helps an individual, group, or local or global community. This year's theme is Health and Wellness.

Team registration provides access to professional development, and student teams will have the opportunity to present their product at the Design to Make a Difference Design Showcase in May.

Show Pittsburgh what you and your students can do when you Design to Make a Difference!
