Bringing A New "Voice" To Libraries & Schools Through Makerspaces

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are so many ways that libraries and schools are being redesigned and changing.  One way is by the addition of Makerspaces which are adding new places for creativity, collaboration, and connections.  When Shannon McClintock Miller and her students added a Makerspace and tools like a Makerbot 3D printer, LittleBits, knitting, and “Maker Lunches”  to the library, little did they know what it would bring to the entire school community.  Through classroom PBL projects, individual passions, and global connections, the students at Van Meter have been inspired to make a difference within their Makerspace, school and the world.
