Description

This course aims to give participants a deeper understanding of what makerspaces are and how makerspaces can be used in schools to support teaching.  This course is also designed to help teachers come up with projects and ideas of which maker space ideas could fit into their school’s curriculum as well as help them to understand which resources they would need to create a low-cost maker space at school. 

Makerspaces are a place in which students can experiment and create things in schools, and is a combination between science lab, woodshop, computer lab and art room. Makerspaces  allow students creative ways to design, experiment, build and invent as they engage in the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) courses. Makerspaces are a great way for students to experiment with their school’s curriculum and develop real-world skills at the same time.  

By the end of this course, participants will have a better understanding of what makerspaces are and will be able to create a low-cost makerspace in their school that is aligned to their own school’s curriculum.

Guided city tours and an excursion will also be part of the programme.
