Makerspaces 2.0: Don’t Just Build a Makerspace; Create a Makerhub


Presented by: littleBits & School Library Journal

Event Date & Time: Wednesday, October 26th, 2016, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

Librarians are at the forefront of the makerspace movement, but how do you a build a makerspace that actually gets students excited to be there and invent? How do you get students (and teachers) to come back again and again? How do you become a resource for faculty and integrate into curriculum?

In this webinar, expert maker librarians, David Saunders and Susan Polos, tell all about how they built their library makerspaces and their tips for engaging students in creativity and invention day after day. Join in the conversation as they look to the next future of makerspaces.

You’ll also hear how littleBits, easy-to-use electronic building blocks, can help you turn your makerspace into a makerhub.
