Demco® Deluxe Maker Collection with Challenge Guide
160+ pages of educator-designed challenges plus all the maker tools
Start making right out of the box with this curated collection of maker tools and supplies — complete with more than 20 hands-on, leveled challenges.
Originally developed for New York City school libraries by a team of practicing maker educators led by Stanford FabLearn Fellow Mark Schreiber, the Challenge Guide is organized into three sections: Low-tech Making, Robotics and Energy & Power. Each lesson includes detailed teacher and student guides that follow the Demco Maker Framework. As students work through three increasingly challenging levels, they progress from instructor-led exploration to inventing their own solutions, reflecting on what they’ve learned and building valuable 21st century skills along the way.
Designed to encourage student-driven learning as stations in the classroom or library, activities support up to 30 makers working in groups of 3–5. Add in a few consumables and commonplace items like cardboard and scissors, and students will have everything they need right at their fingertips. Items can be stored neatly in their original packaging or the included storage boxes.
