Why Your Library May Soon Have Laser Cutters and 3-D Printers | Design | WIRED | HCS Learning Commons Newsletter | Scoop.it

MakerspacA survey by John Burke at Miami University found that 109 libraries in the US had a makerspace or were close to opening one. Others are hosting events like Wikipedia edit-a-thons, where residents plumb the library's resources to create articles about local history.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Makerspaces in the learning commons keep libraries relevant in the age of innovation and new technologies!  Science literacy is just another literacy needing more oomph!  Watch for makey makey kits coming your way to our learning commons this fall!

Summer Reading for Maker Kids

Summer Reading for Maker Kids | HCS Learning Commons Newsletter | Scoop.it

I was reminded recently of The Swiss Family Robinson (free), a book which I never read, but whose treehouse at Disneyland I loved--all those pulleys and bridges and funny little rooms. It got me to thinking about summer reading and what I would recommend to young makers who’d like to take a break from making, curl up under a tree or teepee to read about characters like them.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Reading about being creative, and going on a journey is always conducive to #makered.  Encourage your students to read some of these great classics over the summer!  Who knows where this might lead?  Thanks for sharing Natalie!
