Repair in the Schools and Educational Non-Profits
The Culture of Repair Project supports incorporating Repair into existing or new classes and projects in East Bay schools and educational non-profits. We offer resources to facilitate bringing Repair into the classroom — grants, volunteers, and repair curriculum and materials from allied organizations.
Maker programs are being established in more and more schools. Repair’s problem-solving, materials exploration, design orientation, and systems thinking align exquisitely with Maker curricula, structures and objectives.
In 2019 a collaboration was established among Maker Ed, Agency by Design Oakland and The Culture of Repair Project. A group of educators with long experience in school Maker programs is exploring whether and how Repair might be productively integrated into Maker-Centered Learning. Tools and strategies are already being taken into the classroom and disseminated to other Maker educators. This work holds extraordinary promise and we’re delighted to be a part of it. Details are here.
We’re also in conversation with other East Bay schools and educational not-for-profits about adding Repair modules to existing classes, and/or developing new curriculum expressly about Repair.
