Developing Future Makers

In collaboration with Hamilton Southeastern Schools, the Maker Playground is offering an experiential and project-based curriculum for all 5th grade students. The initiative began Fall 2021.

Modeled after the successful and popular Nature First program at Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve, the program features study trips to the Maker Playground, where students are immersed in the workshop and work collaboratively to solve real-world problems through making (think bridge building or creating a better mouse trap). 

Our goal is to bridge the gap between education and industry, where students can begin thinking about how making is part of building their future career.
