How Can Maker Spaces Help Students in my Classroom?

March 1 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

Everyone’s talking about “maker spaces” in education. What are they, really? Sure, maker spaces are probably great for science or career/technical education classrooms. But what good are maker spaces to students in other core curriculum or non-core classrooms? Can maker spaces make their learning experiences more hands-on and engaging, as well?

We’re kicking off Maker Space March with a panel discussion geared toward answering those essential questions and more! Tune in to hear from LTC staff and learn how they’ve helped districts large and small implement maker spaces into both their buildings and their curriculums. Along the way, you’ll also learn a few practical ways for using maker spaces to ignite student interest and support student creativity & exploration – all while helping those same students achieve classroom learning standards.
