Meaning Maker Studio

Alameda County Office of Education's makerspace and innovation hub

The Meaning Maker Studio is an innovation space that connects the world of design, making and engineering with the instructional needs of Alameda County's teachers and learners.

We believe that learning is at its most effective when we are unleashing creativity and curiosity, when we are building and designing our own meanings, when we have ownership of the experience.

We also recognize the need for standards-alignment and meaningful core content integration that educators must ensure when designing learning experiences. Our mission is to make standards-based instruction more relevant and impactful through a constructionist approach to learning.

Learning experiences and design workshops for students.
