Founded by Dale Dougherty of the Maker Movement.

At Make: we are passionate about empowering people to build or remake their own things, from simple projects to complex inventions. We believe that the joy of creating something with your own hands is unmatched, and as the leading voice of the Maker Movement, we can get you started and take you further.

Make: is a global platform that allows Makers come together to learn, share, make, and collaborate. The launch of Make: magazine in 2005, followed by Maker Faire in 2006, jumpstarted a worldwide Maker Movement which is transforming innovation, culture, and education.

Maker Camp registration on Make: Community is free.

We provide you with resources (project ideas & step-by-step instructions, community connection) to summer camps and young Makers interested in DIY, making, creating, crafting, hacking, tinkering, and learning. Maker Camp connects Camp leaders from across the globe as they create, invent and build projects like stop-motion animation, junk automata, and rainbow spectroscopes.

Member sites spread across all 50 states and 6 continents. Sites include public libraries, Boys & Girls Clubs, makerspaces, 4-H Clubs, and community summer camps.

DIY Kits, Tools, Books, Parts and More Since 2005.

Think of the coolest technology bookstore, museum gift shop, arts & craft shop and electronics store you can dream up and roll them all into one. That’s the idea behind Maker Shed. A smart collection of books, kits, robots, microcontrollers, science sets, electronics, tools and supplies, all curated by us, the people behind Make: and the Maker Faire.

Make celebrates your right to tweak, bend, hack and play with your technology on your time, online, at home, in your local library or makerspace and across 100’s of Maker Faires around the globe.
