What is needed to start a Makerspace in a classroom or school?

Passion – You need to have passion and a belief in the educational value of maker-style projects.

Space – This can be a whole room or only part of a room.

Supplies – Start small with simple craft materials. Often sending a message out to colleagues and the community asking for donations of materials works well.

Storage – Create a place to store materials when they are not in use and student projects as they are being worked on.
