16176 Makerspace + STEM + PBL = Deep Learning
Do you either have an underutilized makerspace or are you thinking of developing a makerspace at your school? This program will provide middle and high school teachers the opportunity for a deep dive into design thinking and authentic PBL to grow a “maker culture.” We will model an active learning environment where you will explore, tinker, create, and fail forward by learning how to use and apply various makerspace tools, resources, and equipment to replicate in your own school or classroom.  This course is for grades 6-12.
