Makerspace in UNC Women in Science Editathon

Trisha Joffey is amazing. She has created a great web educational environment for teachers who want to bring Makerspace into the classroom to benefit kids. She writes: “Makerspace is not only a hackshop where you can go to learn how to use an arc welder for the afternoon. It is an educational concept as well, having materials available that can act as a provocation for inquiry, as well as modern technology and items to invent with.

“Making is fundamental to what it means to be human. We must make, create and express ourselves to feel whole. There is something unique about making physical things. These things are like little pieces of us and seem to embody portions of our souls” Mark Hatch The Maker Movement Manifesto

“A place where young people have an opportunity to explore their own interests; learn to use tools and materials, both physical and virtual; and develop creative projects”
