Gallery of Independent School Maker Spaces

As you sit by the fire dreaming of warmer weather and waiting for your plane to take you to Boston for the 2015 NAIS Annual Conference, take some time and read through the 20 schools that have submitted entries for the Gallery of Independent School Makerspaces.

All schools have been invited to submit materials to be included in this gallery. While the gallery will help feed conversation at this year’s Annual Conference and the new Interactive Makerspace outside the NAIS Bookstore in the conference exhibit hall, it has been designed to live on long past the conference. The site is full of wonderful information about how each school approaches the collaborative, multidisciplinary, problem-based learning approach that is taking the nation by storm- Making and Makerspaces. The site is rich with stories, examples, photos, tips and resources that will help other schools explore how the world of “making” can fit into their schools. If you are interested in learning more about the maker movement and bringing “making” to your school, make sure you visit the Interactive MakerSpace in the exhibit hall.
