    Teachers & Parents, Inspiration

    All this week we have been showcasing the incredible Honorable Mention award winners from our #MakeItReal contest. Today we are proud to feature the final two honorees from this category:

    Washtenaw International Middle Academy

    An “I Made This” mentality permeates learning at this globally-focused middle school. Felicitations are in order for Maureen Young and her students at Washtenaw International Middle Academy in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Click below to see their video. Bravo! 



    George W.F. McMechen High School

    Did you know that the type of learning makerspaces promote best is also the type of learning that students with learning challenges need most? This 100% special needs school does - and their video shows they are clearly doing an amazing job building a maker mindset. Hooray for Andrew Pham and his students at George W.F. McMechen High School in Baltimore, Maryland!
