Portable Maker Workshop

The Portable Maker Workshop is a concept in ongoing development at Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Boston’s Community-Based Engineering Project. The goal of the Portable Maker Studio is to connect classrooms with the tools and materials students need to expand and fulfill engineering goals.

The tools and materials sets are small enough to fit in the back of a small car. Teachers and students decide on the kits and materials they want for their projects.The sections of the Portable Maker Studio include: Tools & Safety, Marking & Measurements, Documentation, Basic Electronics, Connectors & Fasteners, Long Structures, Short Structures, LEGO, Moldables, and Fluid Flows.

Congratulations to our winners! We can’t wait to see how you use the Portable Maker Workshop in your classrooms!
