Want to start your own maker program or take your existing space to the next level? This hands-on workshop will let you experience your choice of a variety of maker stations, as well as discuss critical topics such as best practices, budgeting, how/when to assess, connecting with content standards, and getting administrative buy-in. Learn from a panel of experienced educators who have implemented this and work with students who lead the maker movement on their campuses. You will leave with detailed ideas for creating more than 10 different stations, from no-tech to high-tech, to engage students. Hosted by TCEA.
