We are gradually getting makerspaces up and running around my campus. We’ve opted for several smaller ones that each focus on a theme (like coding, building, wearables, crafts, etc.). This allows students to go to focused centers and for us to find more spaces for makerspaces.
I’ve included some of my favorite resources for creating and running makerspaces in my Making over your library presentation. Note: this does not just apply to libraries. Libraries just happen to be a natural starting places for many makerspaces. You can find more STEAM resources at fennovation.org.
A recent addition includes: Naturebytes – 3D printed kits that help in the making of wildlife cameras for students.
