A little about me… 
Media Specialist at Stewart 
Middle Magnet School in 
Tampa, FL since 2010 
Public library background 
Worked to incorporate 
STEM concepts into library 
Started Makerspace in 
January 2014
Overview 
Origins of the Maker Movement 
Making in the library 
Tools of the Makerspace 
Practical ways to get started 
Examples of Makerspaces in action
WHAT'S THIS WHOLE MAKER THING? 
A BRIEF HISTORY
Make Magazine
Makerspaces and libraries: How to bring some STEAM into your program
Local Makerspaces, Hackerspaces, and Fab Labs
Reasons to make in the 
library 
Students as creators of information, not 
just consumers 
Support the mission of providing resources 
and opportunities for learning 
Build critical thinking and problem solving 
skills 
Foster a culture of creativity and 
collaboration 
Allow for play and exploration 
Support STEAM/Design thinking/PBL/ 
Genius hour
Tools of the Maker 
Movement 
3D Printers 
Building tools (LEGOs, K’nex) 
Small Electronics (littleBits, Arduino, Raspberry 
Pi) 
Arts & crafts 
Take-apart technology 
Robotics 
Digital Makerspace - Coding, Minecraft, 
TinkerCad, Build with Chome
PRACTICAL 
STUFF 
HOW THIS CAN FIT IT WITH 
YOUR MEDIA CENTER 
PROGRAM
Give ‘em what they want 
Survey your kids - what 
kinds of activities do they 
want to see 
Have a Makerspace focus 
group 
Let them try new things 
Skype with experts
Gather some supplies 
Ask around for donations 
DonorsChoose 
School funds - Internal, 
School Advisory 
Committee, PTSA 
Grants - remember, this is 
STEM in action!
Put the supplies out and let 
them play
Incorporate them into 
existing events 
Reading Incentive Parties 
Maker Fundraisers
Clubs or After-school 
events 
If your school has clubs, 
start a Maker club 
Offer activities during lunch 
or recess 
Collaborate with after-school 
care

THE STEAM MAKER CLUB 
AFTER-SCHOOL CLUB FOCUSED ON MAKER PROJECTS
Final Thoughts 
Don't worry too much about a physical 
"Makerspace" - MakerEd is more about the 
culture 
Take it one step at a time - it's about letting your 
kids have a chance to be creative, not about 
getting all the latest gear

Final Thoughts Don't worry too much about a physical "Makerspace" - MakerEd is more about the culture Take it one step at a time - it's about letting your kids have a chance to be creative, not about getting all the latest gear Check out resources on Edmodo and RenovatedLearning.com for ideas and inspiration
