Makerspaces in Schools

Stepping through the doors at EduTech 2015 was an exhilarating experience. Eight thousand attendees were gathering in one location to talk all things education is my equivalent of a shopping spree. There were dazzling resources from one end of South Bank Convention Centre to the other.

One area that caught my eye was the makerspace. It brought out my inner child. There were multiple tables laden with hands-on activities for each of us to complete. I saw teachers create circuit bracelets that glowed when fastened, pianos created out of simple home objects and synthesisers made from tiny magnetic circuits.

All I could think of is how much my students would love these within our school. Keep an eye out for some new additions soon. 🙂
