Maker Cart

Our Maker Cart is equipped with supplies, lesson plans, and resources for teachers in Excelsior public schools and libraries to introduce tinkering and making to K-8 classrooms and encourage students to develop valuable hard and soft skills.

Thank you to our community fiscal sponsor, Mission Science Excelsior Workshop, and grant donor, Excelsior Collaborative.
