Makerspaces 201: I've Got Cardboard, Now What?
Limited Capacity filling up

The Maker Movement is taking the education world by storm and many teachers and librarians have been excited to create makerspaces in their schools. But once you’ve got the supplies and the space, it can be difficult to figure out how to keep the momentum going. In this session, you will learn about how the makerspace program at one middle school started with just three bins of K’nex and a vision. After three years, the makerspace transformed the library into the STEAM hub of the school. I’ll share my experiences from what I’ve learned in my own makerspaces and from visiting makerspaces across the country. You’ll learn strategies for setting up your MakerSpace, building a Maker culture in your school, involving your community, connecting with other schools, optimizing storage space for supplies and projects, and other useful tips and tricks to take your makerspace to the next level.
