In this episode of Learning Unboxed, we're venturing into the inspiring world of maker spaces with Noelle Conover, co-founder of Matt's Maker Space. Founded in memory of her son, Matt's Maker Space is a beacon for STEAM learning, proving to be a game-changer for students and communities alike.
Maker spaces are more than just rooms filled with tools; they are hives of creativity where the process is king. Noelle shares how these spaces have flourished post-pandemic, becoming sanctuaries where students can build, tinker, and learn collaboratively. But it's not all about high-tech gadgets; Noelle reminds us that with a bit of ingenuity, anyone can create a maker space with just cardboard and dreams.
Join me as we discuss how maker spaces can redefine education, why letting go of control can lead to discovery, and how we can all contribute to this growing movement. So whether you're an educator, parent, or just someone who loves the smell of sawdust in the morning, tune in to learn how maker spaces are shaping the innovators of tomorrow.
