While "making" has enjoyed increased attention from education researchers, policymakers, and practitioners, much of its uptake has been in informal, out-of-school learning environments. What happens when these practices make their way into more formal schooling contexts? This presentation examines the possibilities and challenges that surfaced as a new urban public high school tried to bring "the maker ethos" into the center of its teaching and learning. It highlights the role that audience played in motivating students’ design work – and considers how iterative approaches to “making” can, at times, sit in uneasy alignment with the demands and structures of school.

While public libraries have been one of the biggest advocates of the Maker Movement, the actual composition of maker programs within their walls vastly differs. This is mostly due to the distinct institutional factors present in these different spaces, whether patron demographics, staff training, or floor management. I share my findings for a 16-month study where I observed two different library systems – one suburban and one urban – in terms of their implementation of youth maker programs. As I show, the distinct settings not only shape how successful these programs are, but also the very definitions of success itself with regard to learning through making.
