Many hands make light work! This saying never rang more true than it does right now in terms of STEAM education. Official Makey Makey Training Partners have been invaluable since the program's inception in 2016.
We believe the best way to enable teachers to jump into STEAM is through professional development workshops offered by great organizations like yours. Getting hands-on with Makey Makey is the gateway to the Maker educator experience. Early on we knew that we couldn't do it on our own and that’s why we work to foster and cultivate a community of PD organizations, companies, and independent contractors to reach more classrooms through a chorus of learning.
Since that first official partnership in 2016 we have worked tirelessly to enhance the network, train new participants, and continue to support the bigger goal of teaching and learning through making. We also have never stopped tinkering and thinking of ways to deepen the program. With 2021 coming to a close, we have been busy reflecting on our current format and ways that we can improve our network.
Today we are officially announcing our updated Makey Makey Training Partner Program (TPP). The new program is similar to what we have offered our partners in the past, but we are streamlining the process of becoming a partner. We want to make running and advertising workshops easier. In general make the program scaleable and mutually beneficial for all! Still with the main focus of getting Makey Makey into the hands of educators.

If you are looking to become a partner organization, head over to our new Training Partners page for details about what it takes to become a partner organization and to schedule a meeting with us.
