Conversation Starters: Idaho Maker Spaces - Engaging Teens with STEM
Download to my calendar
Thought about starting a Maker Space in your library? Idaho has joined the Maker Movement by launching Maker Spaces in five public libraries across the state.
The State Library has implemented a pilot project that includes training on tools and technology, leveraging partnerships, involving community, and evaluating outcomes.
The results include formal and stealth programming which incorporate engineering, robotics, and other STEM topics to draw teens into these innovative spaces!
Come hear what Idaho is doing, what we are learning, and what's next.
There will be time for discussion, questions, and sharing.
The pilot project is initially focusing on engaging teens through Maker Spaces, but our goal is that these spaces will be available to the entire community.
The libraries in the pilot project represent diverse geographic regions as well as rural and urban communities.
