You may have heard of the “maker” movement and schools that have created makerspaces, and wondered what it’s all about. It’s about exploring. It’s about tinkering. It’s about taking things apart and putting them back together. It’s about making it happen. It’s about students working on projects of their own design, using a variety of materials and tools: from low-tech balsa wood and duct tape to high-tech 3-D printers.Makerspaces guide students in asking both “how” and “why does this work?”_x000B__x000B_Dive right into hands-on learning in the TIES 2014 Makerspace Experience.  Local experts have come together to create a diverse makerspace that includes over six distinct featured areas, including recyclables, circuits and makey-makey kits, programming, arduinos, simple robots, 3D imaging and printing, stop-motion animation, LEGOS, and more. Explore how to expand student interest in science, technology, engineering, math, and art through active participation in “making.” Gain insights for creating a Makerspace in your own school and walk away feeling inspired!
