Here comes another Makerspace Monday!
Let’s check out some videos related to makerspaces! Of course, the first video that comes to mind is Caine’s Arcade, the story of the 9-year-old boy who created an arcade from cardboard in a garage. His imagination inspired millions, launching the Imagination Foundation and the Global Cardboard Challenge.
Here’s what the Global Cardboard Challenge looked like at Virginia Tech. Can you imagine a scene like this in your school library?

This last video provides a good overview of the maker movement.
Are you convinced yet? Are you ready to start making alongside your students?
