Maker Spaces are environments rich in both tools and materials and encourage students to 'think with their hands'. When maker spaces are present within a culture of design thinking, a unique ecology of problem-finding, innovative thinking and creative play blossoms. In this workshop we will investigate how teachers can leverage children's love of making to develop programs in schools that encourage innovation, problem-finding, creativity, collaboration and problem-solving. We will look at ways that curriculum can support and encourage children to discover problems that will inspire them to seek creative solutions in an engaging and playful environment.
