The Power of the Maker Movement

Heather Lister @LibrarianLister

"It is a place for everyone, creative and not creative, to come and explore their passions using raw materials, tools, technology, repurposed items and imagination.  People can work individually or collaboratively, using technology and/or drawing on the collective wisdom of those in the room to help achieve their goal in a makerspace."

"Great educational makerspaces inspire students to own their learning and deepen their thinking by exploring the world with all their senses. In a makerspace designed for independent exploration, curious students tinker and iterate their way through projects inspired by the space."

- The Environment and Tools of Great Educational Makerspaces (Teacher Librarian, October 2014)

"Makers are people who create things instead of just using them."
