Are you ready to get a makerspace or STEM lab going at your school but need help figuring out where to start? Maybe you have a space already, but it’s due for a makeover. There are so many options out there, and technology is constantly changing. Where do you start?  This workshop will provide you a structured protocol for planning, designing, and fully stocking your makerspace best to meet the needs of YOUR students at YOUR school. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, we’ll share the questions you need to ask and the research you want to complete to tailor the space to your needs.  Along the way, you’ll also learn from past and current examples of spaces, receive a guiding document to help you plan your journey, and hear tips, tricks, do’s, and don’ts from an expert who has been through this process multiple times. You may even benefit from the collective experience of the other makers in the room as participants discuss experiences, successes, and challenges.

This training will be held on November 14, 2023 from 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at the ROE #3 Professional Development Center. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. The cost to attend this training will be $40/person and a light breakfast will be provided. Each participant will receive 3.0 PD hours upon completion of the training.
