Wondering about whether maker spaces are right for your school or classroom? Come explore the two most important aspects of a successful maker space and how they impact student and faculty learning. You will participate in Stanford University d.school’s design thinking process to consider how to create a maker space at your school. You will leave with your prototype maker space along with ideas from other participants. (This workshop is appropriate for all academic leaders and classroom teachers)
