A Hands-on Environment

We believe in learning by doing. The experiential learning environment of our professional development grounds teachers in the process of design thinking and puts them to work engaging in the same types of designing and making their students will experience.

Customized for Maximum Impact

Educators can choose from our in-house workshops or a custom professional development experience designed for their school. Whether it’s school-wide design thinking workshops, on-site training for specific tools and machines, or working alongside educators in the classroom, we have a wide variety of options to suit your needs.

Sessions Available

Our professional development sessions put both traditional and cutting-edge maker technologies into your hands, giving you the proficiency to bring what you learned into the classroom. We’ve been showing kids how to make stuff for years; let us show you what we’ve learned!

Through a combination of instructor-led demonstrations, hands-on individual activities, and group discussion, each session covers one topic in the realm of making. You’ll try your hand at different techniques and getting hard-earned tips and tricks that we’ve learned from thousands of student projects.

"The training my colleagues and I received from Bit Space allowed us to move beyond tinkering with cardboard and duct tape to real materials, tools, and professional software."
