In this tutorial, you will learn how to make an Art Bot which is also known as a Scribblebot or Scribble Machine. These contraptions use a vibrating or offset
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.
When I started at JoyLabz in July, Doll- E 1.0 by Shanda McCloskey was still a fairly new release. https://twitter.com/makeymakey/status/1018972668488572928 This adorable picture book, is about a tech savvy young girl named Charlotte who is given a doll by her parents and she's unsure at first about what to do with it. Throughout the book,…
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.
Makerspaces can energize students as problem solvers, and they should be accessible to students with physical disabilities.
Collaborating and Making in the Library Learning Commons. A school librarian, obsessed with Learning Commons transformations, Makerspaces, technology education, and making stuff.
One size DOESN'T fit all, especially when it comes to education. MaKey MaKey lets teachers tailor tech education for student needs.
Whether you are new to this makerspace journey or a makerspace maniac like me, this site is here to help! You will find the pedagogical frameworks for WHY we should have makerspaces along with all of the fun materials of a makerspace including print resources, ideas, student challenges, tutorials and MUCH MORE!! You makerspace might be in a cart or bin, or an entire learning commons or library...it doesn't matter because makerspace is for any teacher on any budget. This is about good teaching and learning PERIOD. It is not about the stuff you have, it is about what you do with it to transform teaching and learning! LETS GET MAKING!
Using paper circuits you can create a light saber from Star Wars. Learn about electricity and circuits. Fun and easy makerspace project.
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.
The Tinkering Studio is primarily an R&D laboratory on the floor of the Exploratorium, but whenever possible we try to share our projects, activities, and developing ideas following an “open source” model. Learn how you too can enjoy our activities in your kitchen, garage, classroom, and community.
Explore resources that help you implement Engineering Adventures, including extra activities, videos, posters, illustrations, apps, and our downloadable professional development guide.
These STEM projects & activities for kids are perfect for the makerspace. Simple, easy and very cost effective. Make a car from cardboard or a boat from a soda bottle. Maker education is fun for all ages.
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.
Build your own electrical board game with this detailed unit / lesson plan! Suitable for Grade 8 and up!
Tankbot is a robot with Caterpillar tracks driven with a Raspberry Pi Zero W and the 4tronix PiConZero board. It has a servo controlled turret with an HCSR04...
Makerspaces encourage student success by demonstrating the value of failure, engaging students with standards and curricula, motivating them to care, and demonstrating real-world uses for education.
