A workshop presentation for Future Science 2015 – the annual conference of the Science Teachers Association of Western Australia (STAWA).

The workshop considers the role of a library makerspace in developing science engagement through cross-disciplinary, formal and informal learning opportunities using STEM approaches to coding, micro-processors, sensing technologies and the internet of things.

Beginning as a simple hands-on introduction to microprocessors and coding, this session will also look at how a library makerspace can support engagement with the Internet of Things via simple sensor systems and computational thinking. 

Participants will require a laptop to engage with some simple coding exercises to control Arduino-class developer boards.
