STEM, STEAM, and Makerspaces are hot topics in education these days, but many educators are unsure how to get started with them, or think they don't apply if they don't teach math or science. Join Meredith Martin as she briefly covers the difference between the terms and talks about different types of spaces that can be utilized for classroom and school-wide Makerspaces. She will also explore some of the tools and supplies needed and provide examples of maker projects. You will discover not only how to get started with Makerspaces, but also how to tie makerspace activities in with standards, integrate them with various content areas, and so much more!

Helped clear up what is meant by those terms since they are bantered about so often and they were not part of my educational background

I loved this webinar! It was very informative and I liked hearing all the different ways in which you can apply this to the school. I would love some data on how successful this has been - numbers and percents.
