When you hear the term “makerspace” do you think of a large room filled with expensive equipment like 3D printers and laser engravers? While this is the case for some makerspaces, there are many models of makerspaces for schools, including ones that exist within the walls of a classroom. This session will overview three models of school makerspaces, highlighting the unique features and considerations of each, and showcasing examples of each model. If you’re interested in starting a makerspace, or if you already have a successful maker program and are looking for additional resources, join us in this session as we explore everything from planning, projects, products, and funding.
Registration open through 5/7/2019 2:00 PM.
