Maker Spaces in Education: Getting started - Barcelona

Rating: 0/5

This course aims to give participants a deeper understanding of what makerspaces are and how makerspaces can be used in schools to support teaching. This course is also designed to help teachers come up with projects and ideas of which maker space ideas could fit into their school's curriculum as well as help them to understand which resources they would need to create a low-cost maker space at school.

Makerspaces are a place in which students can experiment and create things in schools, and is a combination between science lab, woodshop, computer lab and art room. Makerspaces allow students creative ways to design, experiment, build and invent as they engage in the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) courses. Makerspaces are a great way for students to experiment with their school's curriculum and develop real-world skills at the same time.
