Makerspaces encourage hands on innovation, creation, invention and design in shared environments using a mix of digital and nondigital tools. Once only stand alone operations for adults, makerspaces are a perfect fit our schools and classrooms. In this session, we will review what tools you can find in a classroom makerspace and how this space can foster and fuel inquiry and engagement in the curriculum. Participants will learn how they can plan, implement and build a maker program that best suits the needs of their learners (staff included) within a set budget.
