Transform Your School: Practical Tips for Starting a Makerspace




Description:
Makerspaces are an amazing way to bring STEAM, creativity and informal learning into your school, but with so much information out there, many educators aren’t sure of where to get started. In this session, you will get ideas and inspiration on how to bring the Maker Education Movement into your school. Topics covered will include: cultivating a Maker culture, getting student input, finding space, securing funds and donations, gathering supplies, making it happen, and sharing with others. Throughout the presentation, you will see examples from the creation of our school’s library Makerspace, as well as examples from other schools.
