July is kid stuff!


We’re thrilled to announce that July is kid’s month on Make: Online. We’re constantly getting requests to do more kid-related content and projects, so stay tuned over the coming month for much more of this on the site. We’ll have round-ups of our best kid-related coverage so far, in the magazine and here on the site, new kid-friendly projects, and we’re even going to invite some kids in to take our places in some of the columns, reviews, and blog postings. Who better to talk about kids and making than young makers?

As always, we’d love for you to get involved. Do you have a cool kid-related project you’d like for us to cover? Are you a young person who loves MAKE and would like us to consider some contribution from you? Send us your ideas and we’ll see what we can do.

Have you seen our Kids section on Make: Online? Lots of fun stuff there already.
