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!
