Getting Started with a MakerSpace

This hands-on workshop is to give teachers an idea how they can create a maker space inside their own classroom.  We will use some commonly found materials like cardboard and lego, as well as some more purpose-built maker space tools like Keva planks and Micro:bits to dive into subjects like Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts.
