About

This website is meant to share the Maker curriculum at Riverdale Country School in Bronx, NY. The Maker Program at Riverdale strives to

  • Augment the curriculum school-wide with creative, hands-on projects inside and outside the classroom
  • Guide students in creative problem solving through design
  • Offer students, faculty and staff opportunities to master a wide array of practical and technical skills
  • Help students reach the conclusion that with effort, persistence, and a willingness to take risks they can create nearly anything they can visualize, and by extension, get just about anything done that they put their minds to
