FutureMakers is the mobile makerspace for elementary and middle school students in the metropolitan DC area. FutureMakers’s workshops are designed for kids who love to build, invent, take things apart and explore how they work, using hand tools, real materials, and cutting-edge technologies. FutureMakers programs ignite curiosity, seed big ideas, and build skills among young makers: hands-on problem solvers who tinker, build, play, and create. The FutureMakers program was launched in 2010 by Matt Barinholtz, a digital fabricator and woodworker, along with a team of educators, engineers and artists who believe that kids need tools, not just toys.
