Makerspaces 201: I've Got Cardboard. Now What? CLICK HERE for links and resources
Many educators are already familiar with the Maker Movement and how it can bring STEAM into our classes and libraries. But what do we do once we get the tools and supplies? This session will help you setup your Makerspace, build a Maker culture in your school and learn strategies for involving your community, connecting with other schools and sharing your students' creations through social media. You'll also learn about creating design challenges to get your students' creative juices flowing, optimizing storage space for supplies and projects, and other useful tips and tricks. Learn from the story of how we created a successful Makerspace program at Stewart Middle Magnet School over the last two years - starting with just three bins of K'nex and a vision, and transforming our library into the STEAM hub of our school.
