This 10-credit online graduate certificate program is available to students enrolled in master's and doctoral programs in many fields at Rutgers, and is open to all with a bachelor's degree. The certificate program is designed to help educators and practitioners to receive the education and resources necessary for developing competence and confidence to start and supervise a makerspace in a school, community center, or other learning space. Participants will gain proficiency in leading maker-related courses or projects, including maker-based curricula and assessments meeting common standards in STEM subjects. Participants will also explore how maker-centered projects can be leveraged as a vehicle for meaningful, discovery-based learning in mathematics, science, computer science, and/or integrated STEM curricula.

People of all ages can blend digital and physical technologies to explore ideas and learn technical skills as they create new products. The rapidly expanding educational and artistic uses of makerspaces can have maximum impact fostering a new wave of applied, multidisciplinary learning experiences. There is a growing recognition that maker-centered education can transform how and what people learn in STEM. Maker-centered learning is also seen as a leading vehicle for implementing new education standards such as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
