We empower all GSE community members to learn to make their ideas tangible and design tools for learning.

Along the way we explore what is possible in a makerspace, within the context of the premier Stanford Graduate School of Education.



Learn to make. Make to learn.

"At the end of a long day of classes, working on my Catan board became the one thing I really wanted to do. Even though it was work, the iterative practice, problem solving, and the feeling when I finally got something right was both exciting and even therapeutic."

The Makery is located on the first floor of the
Center for Educational Research at Stanford (CERAS) at
Room 102, 520 Galvez Mall, Stanford, CA.
