Makerspaces are increasingly recognized for reigniting a passion for active learning and creation. They are also credited for developing creativity, confidence, and other “soft skills” such as collaboration, problem-solving, and communication. Wendy Harrop of Summit Elementary School will share her four-year makerspace journey and vision for what’s next on the horizon. Dr. Jacie Maslyk, author, veteran educator, and Assistant Superintendent at Hopewell Area School District builds bridges between classrooms and libraries through STREAM. She will review current books that lend themselves to connecting children’s literature and making. Angie Schoeneck of Demco will take you on a 3D tour of makerspaces, helping you imagine how you can transform space into a powerful place for exploration and learning.
We hope to see you there!
