Like many of you, I have started dipping my toes into the MakerSpace waters. Our high school students have the opportunity to use the space, and the rest of our library, during their 42 minute lunch hour. While students have been eager to check out the new “gadgets” we have to offer, many do not know where to get started with them.
The heart of a MakerSpace, in my opinion, is creativity and discovery. I did not want the , pace to be teacher led, but knew my students needed a few resources to get them started, so I designed, printed and laminated some leaflets that hang out in a display in our MakerSpace area. Feel free to use some, or all, of the leaflets I have created in your own spaces!
