Maker spaces have been growing like kudzu in our schools over the past decade. Our new spaces have robots, power tools, electronics, 3D printers, and soldering tools, all powered up and ready to go. In this session, we will explore the integration of MakerSpaces in our schools’ curriculum. This session will look past the “stuff” and dig deeper into the nuances surrounding culture and curriculum, making connections to Next Generation Science Standards, the English classroom, and world languages.  We will take a journey through a year in the Think Tank (Cannon Middle School’s Makerspace) and dive into how these Maker Projects fit into existing curriculum and standards.
