In schools, Makerspaces have increased in popularity, housing a variety of materials from low-tech arts and crafts to high-tech software and electronics for students to experiment with and build their own designs. It is about play, students tinkering to discover, children experimenting to learn, and students building what they dream. In an age of accountability and standardization, these elements have been steadily removed from schools and classrooms. A Makerspace has the potential to put it all back in place. Even so, making a Makerspace come to life in a school is not an easy task. This session will explore how we not only created a Makerspace in our school, but how we are putting making back into our classrooms. We will share how we built our Makerspace and incorporated the concepts into our curriculum and instruction.
