A better future, one maker at a time!

Make Better aims to equip children with tools needed to undertake the challenges of the world they will inherit. By utilizing design+project based learning and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art+Design, and Mathematics), the Make Better program addresses sustainability issues such as energy, climate, food security, healthcare and more. 


Our Mission to MAKE BETTER...

... GLOBAL CITIZENS

FROM RAISING AWARENESS + MINDFUL PRACTICE

At Make Better, children discover sustainability as they develop their foundational values, behaviors and perspective. Children learn about sustainability in the context of their day-to-day lives through concepts such as the 7Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle, respect, repair, reflect and refuse. 

... LEARNERS

THROUGH STEAM + PROJECT BASED LEARNING

Make Better provides students a learning environment to investigate and tinker. Understanding sustainability requires a knowledge of STEAM concepts which children grow by engaging in hands-on activities. 

... PROBLEM SOLVERS

BY BUILDING + IMPROVING

We believe in lasting impact. Children will collaborate to construct solutions as they delve into real world problems together. By tinkering with materials and building prototypes & models, students will test and improve their ideas.

Make Better was founded to give young tinkerers a platform to collaborate with one another as they investigate sustainability topics together.
