Makerspace: Resources and Planning - NEFLIN NEW DATE!! (03/19/18)


Creating a space in your library for users to make, create and learn is a trend that is continuing to grow. Whether you are considering a small portable Makerspace or a permanent space in your library - this workshop will help take new and existing makerspaces to the next level. 

During the session, we will explore:


  • What is a Makerspace?
  • How to incorporate all aspects of STEAM within your library
  • How to make the case for a Makerspace
  • How to plan for a Makerspace your community will utilize
  • Implementation and management of a Makerspace or program
  • Programming and planning to make your program/space an ongoing success 

You will have access to items from NEFLIN's Equipment Lending Library as well as equipment the trainer provides.
