Welcome to Michigan Makers’ new home online!

On this site, we’re merging all of our past posts and continuing to blog about our work with Michigan Makers sites at Mitchell Elementary and Scarlett Middle School. We’re a team of faculty and students from the University of Michigan School of Michigan.

Below this post, you’ll find a collection of former postings from past years, now assembled in this single online home.

Our work is provided to Ann Arbor students at no charge. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services RE-05-15-0021-15 and by the UMSI Founders Fund.
