Adam Kemp, author of “The Makerspace Workbench” and high school engineering teacher, will discuss the hot topic issue of how makerspaces can be used to support education in schools. Using his current makerspace as a test bed for curriculum development, Adam has pioneered methods for constructing and operating successful school makerspaces.
- Determine what it takes to start and operate a school makerspace
- Get ideas and hear success stories
- Brainstorm how makerspaces can support all disciplines, not just STEM
Whether you are simply interested in what a makerspace is, or you just need ideas about using your current one more effectively, this is your chance to join the conversation about makerspace integration and discuss the ways it can benefit any student that walks through its doors.
