One of the goals of a Makerspace is to connect concrete projects to the more abstract worlds of STEM. Bringing do-it-yourself projects into the classroom opens the door to problem solving, engineering, creativity, and real world situations. Not all of us can be MacGyver, but we all can learn to dream, design, create, and repeat. Join Katie Ann Wilson as she shares how you can create space for your kids to say "I Made It!" even if you have a limited classroom funds.
