One trend that’s catching on is the construction of a separate makerspace in schools, where teachers can bring their students to engage in hands-on, creative projects. This might be a section of the library, or a converted computer lab, or even a spare classroom that’s equipped with tools and materials to support student design and creation, modular furniture that can easily be moved around and space to research, think, and sketch out ideas. You don’t need a separate, dedicated space to foster creativity. In fact, every classroom can become a makerspace with the right attitude and a little ingenuity. If your classrooms aren’t big enough to comfortably store tools and materials for student projects, consider investing in a mobile makerspace solution- outfit mobile carts with tools and supplies for all kinds of activities, then wheel them out as needed and store them away in a closet when they’re not in use.
