On April 13th the LEARN team presented two sessions and hosted a POP-UP makerspace at the Library Symposium in Point Claire. It was an amazing. Thank you to the presenters and the attendees – we hope we planted a few maker mindset seeds!
Our session description:
Curious about Makerspaces, ArtHives, Genius Hours and Passion Projects? There’s no better way to learn about the Maker movement than by living the experience yourself! This session gives participants the opportunity to learn about Maker culture and how it manifests in schools. Participants also engage in the process of making and tinkering on a small scale, with access to resources, tools, ideas and community. Like what you experienced? Our pop-up Makerspace will be in place all afternoon for you to come and play. Learn about available and accessible materials and books, and meet like-minded people interested in the hands-on aspects of STEAM education.
