Hi All -
Recently a Lego Wall was installed in our library/media center. It is a part of the developing MakerSpace in our library. If you are not familiar with MakerSpaces, these are areas in classrooms or schools where students are encouraged to use creative and critical thinking skills to build, design, tinker, make messes, explore, collaborate, problem solve, and more. These spaces may or may not include technology tools.
Our building engineer built the backboard and shelf for the lego wall.
Our media specialist asked for lego donations for the wall, and she also wrote a local grant to add to the donations.
We currently have Ozobots, Spheros, and BeeBots in our developing Maker Space.
Here is a photo of some students using an Ozobot to work on computer programming.
Does your school have a MakerSpace? Please leave a comment to share what you might have. We would love more ideas for our MakerSpace!
