Makerspaces | Edgerton Center


Makerspaces are workshops with an emphasis on creativity, collaboration, and community in which students can learn, experiment with new tools, develop skills, and become innovators and designers. They can exist as a corner within a classroom, as a portable cart, as a room that is part of a school library or computer lab, or as a stand-alone shop or facility.Makerspace programs can provide significant benefits to a school community in terms of student engagement, empowerment, and content learning as well as 21st century skills.

The design and implementation of a makerspace are critical to its success. While exciting digital tools may draw students in, it’s the empowered learning that keeps students engaged. Makerspace leaders should consider activities, training, and academic integration to be at least as important as the tools and materials.

The Edgerton Center periodically offers workshops for K-12 educators on how best to integrate a makerspace into the classroom. Check this page for upcoming workshops.

Arduino Uno For Beginners – Step-by-Step Guide To Getting Started

More and more makerspaces around the world are looking to add coding and electronics to their maker education programs.  One of the best ways to do this is by integrating an Arduino board into makerspace projects and lessons.We’ve found that a lot of maker educators haven’t taken the plunge into coding or Arduino because they think programming is scary.  Because of this, we wanted to make sure this tutorial was written for the absolute beginner with no experience whatsoever.This tutorial is a high level view of all the parts and pieces of the Arduino ecosystem.  In future posts, we will take you step by step in creating your first simple Arduino project.

Design Make Teach

Design Make Teach is a blog about MAKING in the classroom. MAKING is a process that engages students in thinking, making and sharing.My name is Josh Ajima. I am a teacher. I believe that I can MAKE a difference.In 2012, I helped plan a TEDx event. My TEDx wish was for a 3D printer for my school. When that wish didn’t magically come true, I decided to MAKE it happen and bought a 3D printer out of personal funds. I now DESIGN, MAKE and SHARE lessons on MAKING in the classroom.
