What do I put in my Makerspace?*

In December MNPS librarians went on two Makerspace Tours. A small group of us travelled to 8 different Makerspaces (on day for elementary and one day for secondary). Based on what we saw in those libraries (and other's) we created a Makerspace items list. This is by no means an exhaustive list of items...but it should get you started! 

Craft/Art supplies
Building tools
           Paper (all varieties!)
      Writing utensils (all varieties!)
      Pipe cleaners
     Popsicle sticks
     Rubber bands
     Sewing machine

     Snap cubes

     3-D printer
      Green screen
     Bee Bots
