Mount Holyoke College has been named one of the best maker schools in higher education.
The 200 schools on Newsweek’s inaugural Best Make Schools list are “institutions with innovative programs that demonstrate the ingenuity and community engagement that are hallmarks of the maker movement.” Newsweek partnered with Make, a publisher of magazines and books, to curate the list.
The maker trend has swept higher education in recent years, but Mount Holyoke’s Fimbel Maker & Innovation Lab still stands apart from the pack with its emphasis on learning-by-doing, mentorship and guidance, accessibility and diversity.
