Connect virtually and watch makers around the world share different projects, learning spaces, creations, coding, 3D designs, art lessons, etc. There will be a session every half hour and they each will have a connected challenge.  When you arrive on this website, you can view the schedule, challenges, and watch the live presentations above.



We will spotlight those that have amazing things to share.  Don't forget to post your pictures and videos of student creations using #GlobalMakerDay on Twitter or in the Padlet above during and after the event! 



One part of the event is participating in challenges with opportunities for your class to solve problems, be creative, and PLAY. Challenges will be posted on this page 1 week before the event and given in the sessions during #GlobalMakerDay.

Explore the maker in you and share your inner genius with the world.
