Building a Makerspace: Building a Culture of Creativity and Discovery in Education (3-4pm)

Building a Makerspace: Building a Culture of Creativity and Discovery in Education (3-4pm)
4th Floor Library

Presenters: Katie Ghidiu (Interim Director, Library Services), Anjali Parasnis-Samar (Library Services), and Kevin Klapka (Library Services)

Come tour the newly renovated space on the 4th floor of MCC Libraries and help us turn it into a makerspace that's authentic to the needs of the MCC community. A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing, that uses high tech to no tech tools. This workshop will showcase what maker tools MCC Libraries already offers, as well as giving faculty the opportunity to discuss what they would like to see in a makerspace to support their teaching and learning. This discussion will help shape the future direction of MCC Libraries makerspace and what tools, support, and workshops we offer in the 2018-19 school year. The beauty of makerspaces is that they can be created on any budget with any material in any place.
