Join the maker education movement for kids!


The Wonder Nook promotes maker education for kids of all ages. This includes coding, tinkering, genius hour, and full-on building. We also encourage rich outdoor learning experiences -- the dirtier the better.Visit the Maker Education Initiative to learn more about the kids maker movement. Already committed? Browse the sections below for projects, ideas, and research.

Here's to the next generation of doers, makers, and creative risk-takers. We do real tools and mud pies. We tinker, code, and explore. We nurture big ideas and bigger deeds. We believe failure is a lesson rather than an end. Most importantly, we believe learning should be fun.
