Workshop Overview

How do you provide students with innovation and STEM opportunities when you do not have the dedicated space? Maker space isn’t always about the location. The projects and creativity that occurs is what makes the space. This session will help participants think about how to develop environments in classrooms, libraries and other spaces that promote creative thinking, collaboration, and engagement. The workshop will include Project Lead the Way hands-on activities that participants can replicate in the classroom.
