MAKER BREAK is a free community makerspace program for children and young adults in Sheboygan, WI. We recognize the value of hands-on learning and work to provide equitable access to experiences that empower young people through problem solving, divergent thinking, and resilience. The Maker Education organization has selected MAKER Break (The Étude Group, John Michael Kohler Arts Center & Mead Library) as an official Maker Corps Partner Site for 2017. The Exploratorium in San Francisco, Hive NYC Learning Network, and The Bubbler at Madison Public Library are previous partner sites.
ONGOING SUMMER MAKING OPPORTUNITIES
MAKER Break in the Park offers children ages 7+ opportunities to make and learn with our Maker Corps members every day of the week at five different parks across the city of Sheboygan. We look forward to making with you in your neighborhood!
IDEAS and Mosaic, ESAA, The ARTery, and Mead Library will have open studios with opportunities for participants to do self-selected and self-directed making. Participants are welcome to use the tools and the expertise of our Maker Corps members while using these community makerspaces.
Summer Maker Consortium is an opportunity for teens to develop their leadership skills, provide a service to their community, and to pursue a passion project of their choice. Weekly meetings begin June 22. Become part of the international Maker Movement!
