MAKE and RadioShack Expand Partnership

MAKE and RadioShack Expand Partnership


Very soon, it’s going to be a lot easier to find great projects, materials, and tools for prospective makers to build with and use to expand their skills. This week, just in time for Maker Faire Bay Area, RadioShack and Maker Media announced a major expansion of their partnership.

“Adding to the popular Make line of kits, like ‘Getting Started with Arduino,’ the new cobranded product lineup from Maker Media and RadioShack combine Maker Media’s strength in cultivating and growing the maker movement with RadioShack’s strong retail footprint and DIY heritage,” said Dale Dougherty, founder and CEO of Maker Media. “Our new cobranded products are designed to give makers a path to making while they continue to develop their skills and push the limits of their creativity.”

New Make-branded kits, tools, materials, and guidebooks will start landing in RadioShack stores nationwide this Fall, broadening the availbility of great DIY resources and hopefully introducing many new makers-to-be to the world-wide movement.
