Launch of a major maker education initiative in Netherlands
A new website and initiative has just launched in the Netherlands at makereducation.nl.
It is in Dutch, but I got the scoop from Karien Vermeulen of the Waag Society in Amsterdam. The initiative is set up to:
- Offer schools the opportunity to apply for a voucher that covers the costs of a maker education activity in cooperation with a makerspace
- Start a maker education learning community for pioneer teachers
- Do some research on maker education and creativity
- Collect and share good projects
- Share events, resources, and what’s happening all over The Netherlands supporting making in education.
The website is really cool looking too!
