Let's Create a Makerspace!
It's easier than you think!
Picture a space inside your school where students can create, invent, build, tinker and make. Students are asking questions - not looking for answers but seeking how to get to the answer. They're focused, engaged, and challenged. They're learning! Join this webinar to learn how to create a dedicated room, space in the library, or a corner of your classroom that supports this type of transformative environment.
After completing this 30 minute webinar, participants will be able to...
- Understand how makerspaces contribute to developing 21st century skills and design thinking.
- Choose the right type of makerspace solutions to fit their school needs.
- Pick the appropriate products needed to build out a makerspace based on any budget!
