Maker Ed Scoop it

We continue to curate resources on our Maker Ed Scoop it! site. Here you will find websites, projects and much more! Check back often as more resources are being added regularly.  We encourage you to help your student learn to tinker, re-invent, re-imagine, and recycle as they explore project based learning with the maker ideas.
