Creating an active School Makerspace

A successful Makerspace needs more than cool machines and tech kit, it relies on good workflow systems, organisation of gear and providing engaging, age appropriate activities. Our methods have been well tested in real life - we'll cover everything from setting up a space to what to do if the machines or activities go wrong!

In this session we will cover:

  • Equipment and materials - making machines, where to get supplies, etc
  • Storage and parts management
  • Computers and apps
  • Setting up the space
  • Health & Safety, security
  • How to find good tutorials and templates online
  • How to run a creative workshop Maker-Ed style
