Have you been wanting to start a Makerspace in your classroom but haven't been sure where to start? Look no further!

A Makerspace is an area of the classroom or common media space that is reserved for creative exploration, engineering, tinkering, and inventing. In a Makerspace, children have opportunities to discover, assemble, construct, test, and explore using divergent, “outside the box” thinking. A Makerspace can be used during whole class Maker challenges, incorporated as a center, or accessed during unstructured creative time.

This package contains EVERYTHING you need to get started, including the following:
