2:40 PM Case Study: Creating an Effective Makerspace to Promote Collaborative and Creativity

The American International School of Guangzhou has two campuses, and their MakerSpaces couldn't be more different. The elementary campus is compact and has no designated MakerSpace. The upper school is large and has multiple designated spaces. Yet both equally meet the needs of their students and have grown beyond the original intent of the program.
 
Join us to learn how the MakerSpaces at AISG have given rise to authentic learning and yielded projects that lived far beyond the end of the school year.
 
·          Considering MakerSpaces as a state of mind. Knowing the reason of introducing the concept into the school
·          Examining the equipment and resources which have yielded the most lasting results
·          Considering how MakerSpaces have supported the existing curriculum and extended learning in previously impossible ways
