Helping you Inspire AHA Moments: Even via Remote Learning

BitSpace exists to empower children to become critical thinkers and problem solvers who are inspired to lead the way in our rapidly changing world by supporting educators dedicated to unlocking creativity in the classroom and beyond.

With almost 1 billion students out of school, we understand how hard teachers are working to create engaging learning opportunities for students via remote learning. What you can expect from us at BitSpace is high-quality maker education content that will help you engage your students in meaningful, relevant, and high-tech learning opportunities while they are at home and at school once you’re back in the classroom.

Straight From Our Innovation Hubs To You + Your Students

We are maker ed experts, architects, designers and engineers. Through our two youth-only maker labs in Chicago, we’ve impacted 6,000 students & more than 100 schools. That experience is the basis of all our online (and in-person) Professional Development courses, school-based programs, and Makerspace “design and build” services.

A Flexible Learning Option for Educators Everywhere: Online PD

BitSpace’s Online Professional Development courses were built for you — the teacher who is ready to spearhead a revolution in education & sees the current reality as an opportunity to accelerate change. No matter where you live or where you are in your career, you’ll find what you need to expand your maker mindset and design thinking skills.

Earn PDHs & Build Immediately Applicable Skills

Educators can now earn professional development hours thanks to the Illinois State Board of Education through BitSpace’s online Professional Development Courses. Approved hours will be provided by IDEA. You’ll find what you need to expand your maker mindset and design thinking skills — no matter where you live or where you are in your career.
