You’re excited to build a STEM Lab or Makerspace – but where do you start? This workshop will provide an overview of key decision-making processes you’ll need to consider as you bring your STEM Lab or Makerspace to life. Along the way, we’ll also discuss recommendations for the space, staff, curriculum, and equipment you’ll need to make your STEM Lab or Makerspace vision a reality. 3D printing, robotics, coding, and game design will all be explored in this session, so join us and discover how you can integrate hands-on STEM learning into your school’s curriculum.
