Welcome… to a community of people who have a passion for making things, and who want to share that with others by making with others by setting up a Makerspace. This playbook will help you establish a wonderful new resource in your school, neighborhood, or wider local community. It shares the knowledge and experience from the Makerspace team as well as from those who have already started Makerspaces.

Girls RISEnet, a partnership between the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, and SECME, Inc., strengthed the professional capacity of informal science educators to engage and motivate minority girls in grades 6-12 to explore and pursue science and engineering careers. The project addressed the national need to cultivate diversity in preparing the next generation of female scientists and engineers.

Follow Along with the Engineers of Room 1 There has been a push in the United States to place a larger focus on STEM subjects (Science Technology Engineering Math). The STEM movement encourages classrooms to study all of the STEM subjects, and to learn how they work together. In Room 1 we will do this in our Maker Space. Follow along with what we're up to. Our 3D printer will be a part of this, but we've got a separate webpage for that.

This is a fun and creative physical computing project that opens a doorway to computational thinking concepts and practices. From brainstorming to designing, engineering and programming, students create their own interactive robots. By programming microcontrollers and various electronic and mechanical components, students make their ideas come to life. This project is an adaptation of the Lawrence Hall of Sciences Robot Petting Zoo, with an additional emphasis on 3D engineering with cardboard.
