Opportunities for everyone, no experience required

We challenge students to think deeply about how and what they learn when creating with tangible and digital tools.

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.

The GSE Makery is excited to announce more virtual events for the fall! We have workshops, drop-in hours, and design challenges that you can participate in remotely. Check out our special holiday workshops, too. RSVP to get the instructions and zoom link at

Join us in some fun and games this summer! We'll show you a bunch of ways to make your own fun. You can do the challenges on your own, or tune in for some support and good company.

Student Spotlight

With roughly 1/3 of the world sheltering in place, young children are often spending far more time than usual in front of computers. But it is still very important for them to be interacting physically with their environment. GSE student Mathieu Penot (LDT '20) is busy providing short online lessons for kids that get them making things, using materials found at home!



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.
