A better future, one maker at a time!
Make Better is a summer day camp that 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 + IMPACTING ATTITUDES
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.
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 is being held at Brooklyn Commons, an art and events venue with classrooms, centrally located in Boerum Hill and near public transportation
