What is “making,” what constitutes a “makerspace” and why does making matter? Join museum professionals in a four-day immersive maker experience where you are the learner. Examine the value and importance of making in education by experiencing it for yourself.
Participate in hands-on making, engage with other educators and explore MAKESHOP’s Principles of Practice and other research-based tools and strategies. Whether you are an experienced educator, maker expert, new to teaching/makerspaces or anywhere in between, this professional development experience will offer insight into the people, processes, tools and materials necessary to cultivate maker-centered learning for any space, formal or informal.
We recommend attending with another representative of your institution, be it a teacher, librarian or administrator, so you can support each other’s efforts and implementations beyond Boot Camp.
Explores how empowerment through making can be translated to other challenges that students face, specifically within the realm of injustice and inequity.
