Makerspaces in the Library: Science in a Student's Hands
Julian, Kristi D.; Parrott, Deborah J.
Journal of Learning Spaces, v6 n2 p13-21 2017
Makerspaces supply a venue for students to construct a variety of real-world products at the collegiate level using science and technology standards. The maker movement is sweeping the science learning community by storm in the library setting with remarkable success. The maker movement provides an opportunity to transform the library into a learning environment that empowers learners as they research, draft, create, collaborate and problem solve. This article examines how science educators, administrators and librarians collaborate to create makerspaces with which students design projects, products and engage in activities to ignite science learning.
