Maker Corps

The Children’s Creativity Museum has been selected by Maker Ed as a 2015 Maker Corps host site. Now in its third year, Maker Ed collaborates with more than forty organizations nation-wide to bring maker activities and approaches to the communities they serve.

Through our partnership with Maker Ed, two qualified Maker Corps members will have the exciting opportunity to create and facilitate hands-on programming here at CCM. Click HERE to learn more about this program.

Soft Circuit Quilt Making
Friday, August 14  |  11:00am & 1:30pm
