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!

Great workshop and ideas on how to get started with Makerspace
Excellent! Extremely informational and inspiring. Melody Martin makes this seem easily achievable, not only in the classroom, but throughout the school.
Great workshop to get you thinking about integrating steam into the classroom.

very interesting.
Great ideas if you are getting started with STEM or Makerspace. I especially liked the idea about taking apart an old computer and challenging the students to put it back together.
