American International School of Guangzhou
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.
