I guess the maker movement at AHS officially started when we ordered a 3D printer at the end of the 2013-14 school year for the library. I had been researching the movement and reading everything I could get my hands on about makerspaces. After attending the ISTE conference during the summer, I was hooked. We had the perfect space, part of the studio inside the library that was seldom used by the broadcast class. The day before students came back to school, a student and parent set the makerbot mini up and making began. We pulled out the robotics EV3 Lego kits, moved 2 iMac desktops the room and solicited supplies from the community and teachers.
Making space for visions, inventions and VOICES.
