Across the globe, schools are embracing the MakerSpace concept. Once your school decides to invest in this movement, establishing a culture needs to be the primary focus. One thing Russell Street School staff members have discovered over the past few years is that while the ‘what’ is essential, it is the ‘how’ that truly drives impactful student learning. The presenter will share her school's approach to making the shift from a traditional ‘Computer Lab’ to an innovative ‘Think Tank’ at our school. The journey began with a successful grant application in October 2015 to the launch of the transformed space in April 2016.

Join in the conversation about one school's approach to establishing a MakerSpace and a school-wide maker culture.
