Kits

Each kit includes all of the materials required to complete the project along with instructions and an instructors guide. Additional materials are also available on the Teaching Commons.

Makers by Mail works like a lending library. For the cost of shipping, we will send along the number of kits that you need for your group. You are only responsible for the shipping costs (priority mail) and any damaged or missing parts.

The MbM Project is scaling up. Due to high demand, we presently have a limited availability of kits. If you are interested in ordering a MbM kit, please contact us.
