"Makerspaces are becoming more prevalent in our educational settings these days. Kevin Mowat shared with me Diana Rendina‘s current definition of a makerspace:

"A makerspace is a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials."

A great definition to be sure. The scope of the “place” is the issue for me, as it is for my colleagues as well. Schools shouldn’t just have A makerspace… Schools should BE a makerspace!  It’s more about mindset of the teaching staff!"

At STEM Village, we love finding the best STEM education resources available and sharing them in our Science, Math, Technology, and Discovery units. This week, we celebrated National Engineers Week across North America, so we shared our favourite engineering resources all week on our Twitter and Facebook feeds! Engineering education intersects so many wonderful STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) topics – from physics, to robotics, to biology and chemistry, and even software design! Engineering also teaches students to think deeply, make connections, and become the future problem-solvers we need to develop in our future generations. Here’s a list of the Top 6 Engineering Education Resources we love at STEM Village:

Moving Beyond Lego Walls - Worlds of Learning - Laura Fleming @LFlemingEDU

Moving Beyond Lego Walls - Worlds of Learning - Laura Fleming @LFlemingEDU | Investigate, Initiate, Integrate, Implement and Innovate. | Scoop.it

"Anyone who follows my work knows that I am passionate about creating makerspaces that are unique to individual school communities. I have said many times that:

No two makerspaces should be exactly alike, because no two school communities are exactly alike.


All too often, school districts just replicate what others are doing or base their decisions on makerspace trends. The goal should be to create makerspaces that are unique, meaningful and relevant to your school communities while ensuring that it is not only vibrant for now, but also sustainable into the future.  One such example is including a Lego Wall in a makerspace.  While Lego Walls certainly can be fantastic, I think many have become complacent and are simply putting Lego Walls in their makerspace because they feel that it is something they have to do because everyone is doing it. 


After going through the Makerspace Planning Process, if building a Lego Wall is right for your school's makerspace, then I say go for it!  In this post, however, I would like to push your thinking and offer high-tech and low-tech alternatives to a Lego Wall.  "

Shannon Mersand: 12 Questions (and Answers) about Makerspaces!

Shannon Mersand: 12 Questions (and Answers) about Makerspaces! | Investigate, Initiate, Integrate, Implement and Innovate. | Scoop.it
What is needed to start a Makerspace in a classroom or school?

Passion - You need to have passion and a belief in the educational value of maker-style projects.

Space - This can be a whole room or only part of a room.

Supplies - Start small with simple craft materials. Often sending a message out to colleagues and the community asking for donations of materials works well.

Storage - Create a place to store materials when they are not in use and student projects as they are being worked on.
