The 2023 winners are educators from 10 different states, engaging students in CS through maker education in K-12 schools, libraries, museums and makerspaces.
The Infy Makers Awards contest by Infosys Foundation USA is open to educators from K-12 schools, universities, colleges, libraries, museums, makerspaces and youth-serving non-profit organizations using maker education to promote equitable and inclusive pathways for K-12+ students in computer science. Ten winning educators will receive a $10,000 grant and the opportunity to participate in the Making CS Inclusive Cohort, a professional learning experience facilitated by Digital Promise from January to August 2024. The grant is flexible funding that can be used for materials, projects, research, community engagement and more. The awards are part of Infosys Foundation USA's support for maker education, including the #WhyIMake initiative.
