Maker Month

Inspiring Makers throughout October

Throughout October we’re empowering makers around the world! Our long-term goal is to inspire 10 million makers and creators by the year 2030, through upskilling, providing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) education, vocational and skills training, and access to Makerspaces.

Our celebration of makers and innovators this month demonstrates our commitment to empowering creators everywhere who are shaping the world around us.

Worldwide, Maker Month invites the next generation of makers and builders to participate in activities that will spark their curiosity, facilitate learning and provide opportunities for growth. Get inspired and then get involved with additional resources below.

Why Celebrate Maker Month?


Together, let’s drive an understanding
of the skills gap.


Maker Month is meant to be exciting and engaging.


Engaging in STEAM activities allow you to
learn new skills.

We support those who build. Students pursuing a career in the trades are eligible to apply for the DEWALT Trades Scholarship. Five students will be awarded $10,000 for education costs at any U.S. trade, vocational, or post-secondary school. Interested students are encouraged to submit an application explaining why they entered the trade of their choice.
