A makerspace is a place where students make "meaning." A space to gather, meet, share and collaborate. Turning knowledge into action where hands-on learning provides students opportunities to make, design, create, play, test and learn.
Makerspaces come in all shapes and sizes with (everything and the kitchen sink) tools, technology, arts and resources to spark innovation, creativity, inventing, exploring, entrepreneurship, critical thinking, problem-solving and mentoring.
Exploration sometimes requires you to keep special equipment nearby. Locking, rolling storage is roomy enough for large or small supplies and can move to wherever you need it.
Match your makerspace furniture with its purpose. Heavy duty tables belong with heavy duty projects.
Even a simple rectangular table can be a makerspace as long as there's room to work and supplies at hand.
