Our pedagogy is academically validated

Standardized test scores are the most apparent indicator of success, but they may never accurately capture how making affects student achievement. Making is more about the process—through design thinking, project-based learning and the development of 21st century skills—that helps to prepare students for life outside of the classroom.

Based on the pioneering work of Sir Ken Robinson, Dr. Sugata Mitra, and Sal Khan, we developed an innovative student-led pedagogy process for making. Putting ideas front and center in the learning journey is the most important part of the making experience at Be A Maker Club. We believe that our learners remain excited about making because they have agency over their learning process.

In 2019, we were awarded a fellowship by the Kravis Lab for Social Impact at Claremont McKenna College. Working with their team of educators and researchers, we conducted primary research which found that 86% of our student expressed enthusiasm for learning STEAM subjects after attend a makerspace class with Be A Maker Club.
