London-based Restart Project: "We are working with keen educators and student leaders to discover how best to spread our Restart activities and ethos in schools."

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.

Repair turbocharges Making.

 

In 2018 we began working with Agency by Design Oakland to develop approaches to introducing Repair into Oakland’s established Maker program. Classroom results were impressive. Details are here.

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.
