A Makerspace is a place where educators can gather tools and materials to support children with creating, inventing, tinkering, designing, fabricating, or otherwise enabling children to make something. It is a unique learning environment that encourages tinkering, play, and open-ended exploration for all. A Makerspace is child-led and does not have to be expensive or include large tools. The session will explore the concepts of space, tools, materials, organization, documentation, display, and inspiration. A makerspace reinforces the theories of Tinkering and STEAM while empowering children through affording them a voice and providing choices in the school age environment, thus supporting their growing need for responsibility and autonomy.
