We’ll explore the benefits of creating a Center-Based Makerspace, its functionality, and how we can use different types of challenges (challenge cards, novel engineering, and curriculum-based challenges) to build an effective and manageable Makerspace.  We’ll look at how to create challenges and see what it would look like in practice. This presentation is appropriate for general education as well as library media.
