Many schools are looking to establish a maker-space in their community. This will be a hands-on presentation of how makerspaces are affecting schools on a cultural level. In order to be truly transformative in the lives of our students we have had to embrace the idea that we must break down the traditional order that schools impose and rebuild from a true 21st century perspective. Students and faculty have to learn to value experimentation, collaboration, innovation and failure. This is the most important role of teachers within a maker-space.

We'll go over popular learning projects from our maker spaces such as Lego Robotics, Cubelets, Makey Makeys etc.
