There has been a shift in education toward inquiry and hands-on, exploratory learning. The makerspace movement lends itself to many of these ideals. This workshop provides background information about makerspaces and the maker movement, and encourages teachers to get involved and bring it into their classrooms. Students will benefit from the challenges of hands-on inquiry that challenges the traditional classroom setup. Makerspaces provide an opportunity for all students to be successful and for parents and the greater school community to become involved in the classroom.
