This zip file includes the printables you’ll need to set up a small makerspace center (also called a maker space, hackerspace or DIY center) within your library or school using Goldie Blox (TM) storybooks and building sets (not included obviously).
Download the preview for full contents.
Product Contents includes:
• Center signage with "We will" statements (in both editable Microsoft Word document and easy-to-print PDF file formats; landscape and portrait versions included)
• Editable lesson plan for makerspace library center aligned to PA and National Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, PA Academic Standards, AASL Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards

If you aren’t sure about whether or not a makerspace / DIY center is right for your library or classroom, I recommend downloading the preview and doing your own research on makerspaces and Maker Faire. I’ve found the "Makerspace Playbook" by Makerspace Magazine
to be very helpful.
