I’m looking to gather as much information as possible throughout the globe of how Maker Spaces have the ability to transform how we teach and think. After spending the last 27 years traveling the world providing hands-on-minds-on science and STEM teacher training workshops to teachers of all grade levels I have come to the realization that Maker Spaces may hold the key to truly transforming educational systems worldwide. Of course, Maker Spaces are not limited to school-age participants, anyone who has the opportunity to join a local, regional, national or global Maker Space organization has the ability to express their creativity, think critically, communicate and collaborate with others. My goal is to collect as much information from as many Maker Space, and similar type facilities as to how they evolved, the struggles they have faced along the way, as well as success stories, past events, future projects, etc. I will be taking all the information collected and putting together a documentary type movie on the Maker Space movement. My goal is to help individuals and groups interested in starting Maker Spaces see how other groups evolved. I have a vision to see more “Maker Spaces” within all schools, and libraries around the world. If you are interested in sharing your Maker Space stories, photos, audio, video clips etc.. please contact me via the contact form on this website. Upon, completing the contact form, I’ll send you additional information for submitting jpegs, audio, short video clips etc. of your Maker Space. Dr. Diana Wehrell-Grabowski is also available to provide professional staff development, and consulting on designing, building and maintaining a Maker Space within your school, library, community, and beyond.
