When is National Week of Making??

Created by the Nation of Makers, and recognized by the Obama White House in 2021, National Week of Making is celebrated from May 16-22, 2022. This week promotes the development of STEM, the arts, design, fabrication, and manufacturing while supporting, encouraging, and promoting organizations and individuals from around the country who are working to create more opportunities for more people of all ages to make.

Making is in our DNA

Our 3Doodler 3D pens attract people of all ages. Our community is comprised of builders, makers, tinkerers, and dreamers. 3Doodler has been a long-time proponent of adding an Arts component to STEM education. Our 3D pens are currently being utilized in over 10,000 K-12 schools across the country, and in many university programs as well!

In addition, 3Doodler helping to shrink the STEM gender gap by attracting more girls into STEM classes with our artistic, hi-tech 3D printing pen solutions. “Students love the instant gratification of Doodling.

My maker space is 50% girls at all times, and 3Doodler is a great way to get girls interested in tech.” -Robin F., Makerspace Coordinator.
