eduFAB is positioned to support schools, districts, and out of school-time programs to fully integrate digital makerspaces into their curriculum, school, and culture.

In service of student-serving projects and programs, eduFAB stays informed with the latest academic research and literature surrounding digital makerspace integration in formal education. Together, we can develop frameworks that reflect current empirical research and educational trends while centering students and supporting your school's approach to teaching and learning.
Digital makerspaces have the potential to transform student learning, but teacher training lags behind schools' efforts to purchase and install equipment. Teachers need support in technical, pedagogical, and content knowledge areas to authentically integrate these tools for learning. We can design a comprehensive training and support plan to bridge this divide.
There is no one-size fits all inventory list for educational makerspaces. Each school, program, and student centered approach needs specific support from different technologies, kits, and curriculums. Taking an assets-driven approach combined with years of technology experience, eduFAB consultants can help curate the technology, materials, and tools that will benefit your unique students in your unique program.
Districts who are looking to develop a robust STEM, STEAM, or makerspace curriculum can partner with eduFAB for research, planning, implementation, and evaluation. Through stakeholder assessment with a human centered design approach, we can work together with staff, administration, students, community members, and others to develop a mission-vision and action steps for measurable success.
