Looking to build, open or update a makerspace or STEM hub in your community? We've pulled together some of our top technology must-haves for any ideation, creation and innovation space.
Makerspaces often go by a number of names but at their essence, they are creative spaces for students to explore, discover, tinker and create within a school environment. These spaces often attract a diverse range of students wanting to learn how to problem solve, collaborate and think outside the box to build solutions to problems and challenges.
With a big focus on hands on learning and learning through failure, these spaces promote interdisciplinary learning as they teach students essential skills around inquiry, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving and play based learning. To build a successful makerspace you need a dynamic mix of passionate leaders, engaging
activities linked to industry and the right equipment that will enable students to create and innovate.
