A makerspace (also called a maker space, hackerspace or fab lab) is where students can create, think, problem-solve and have fun. To get an idea of what that can look like in a library or school, watch this video or look up Maker Faire on YouTube. After watching a few of the videos, you’ll get an idea of what the maker movement is about.
Product Contents includes:
♢ Center signage with “I will” statements for Journal Making or Writing Center (in both editable Microsoft Word document and easy-to-print PDF file formats; landscape and portrait versions included)
♢ Signage for space identification and maker journal prompts
♢ Maker journals with self-check rubric (Full page version is editable in Microsoft Word AND Google Drive or Classroom; half-page foldable booklet version editable in Microsoft Publisher or easy-to-print PDF file formats.)
