Change today.
Invent tomorrow.

Created for teachers to engage students in meaningful learning, Makedo Change is a series of global citizenship STEAM programs that explore extreme poverty and the climate crisis, while promoting changemaking.

Run Makedo Change
in your classroom

Facilitate the ready-to-go programs your way. 
Run every lesson, follow our suggested abridged versions, or select the lessons that work for you.

Lessons meet a wide range of curriculum standards from across the globe including common core, NGSS and ISTE.

The interdisciplinary nature of the lessons means you can run them in any class like English language, arts, math or science blocks, STEAM, creative studies and specialist classes, and school clubs.

Support your students to develop STEAM skills, empathy and the 21st Century skills of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.

Your students will be challenged to contemplate global citizenship and engage in inspiring and meaningful learning.

Fundraise for an evidence based not-for-profit that is affecting significant change.

Fundraise and make a change

Students seek sponsorship to fundraise for the global issue they are focusing on.

According to the UN, two billion people live without safely managed drinking water which is why our inaugural Makedo Change program explores the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6: “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.”

In support of this goal, all classroom fundraising efforts contribute to the measurable and life-saving work of Evidence Action - a not-for-profit that provides over 9.8 million people with free and reliable access to safe water every year.

Through fundraising, students contribute to solving a real world problem - they are making change!

A peek into the program

Through hands-on learning experiences including Makedo cardboard construction as well as explicit content-based lessons, students explore global citizenship and changemaking, investigate real world problems, and follow the design process to invent creative solutions.

Teachers love change

  • The Makedo Change curriculum was incredibly engaging for our fourth-grade students. The content is a great blend of maker and design curricula that can be adapted to fit almost any content standards.

    Greg McDonough - Innovation Space Director, Lake Forest Country Day School, Illinois USA
  • The Makedo cardboard construction kit is a phenomenal resource which provides pupils with the tools to allow their creativity and problem solving to flourish. Makedo Change allows teachers to teach children in an engaging way and then encourages them to fundraise to help to make a difference. Thank you Makedo!

  • I love the cross-curricular learning opportunities it provides and how easy it was to implement. It opened up important conversations about global citizenship and how we can help make our world a better place. I've recommended it to my colleagues as a must-have in their classroom communities.

    Amanda Long - Pringle Creek Primary School, Whitby Ontario Canada
  • The Makedo Change program has provided my grade 3s with a vehicle for rich and meaningful conversation and learning about some important global themes, and the hands-on Makedo projects have been a fun and interactive way to engage every student. I love the interdisciplinary nature of the program, and the way it aligns to so many curriculum standards.

  • “The Makedo Change Program helps to build thinking classrooms in which students experience deeper learning and the Global Competencies. It provides students with the tools to develop their own ideas and put them into action. Our students have the potential to change the world - and they are one step closer with the Makedo Change Program.”

    Ashton Fischer - St. Luke Catholic School, Waterloo Ontario Canada
  • Students were able to see the value in being passionate about things that interest them and how they can use that passion to do good in the world. 
    Makedo change discusses many important global issues and provides insight into how we become global thinkers. My grade 8 students loved the in-depth conversations and the learning that came with each lesson.
