Talking…. Makerspaces, technology and books

STEM Punk’s ‘The Future Learning Magazine’ is created by teachers for teachers to inspire future thinking in education. The online edition is free to view and download and contains resources for implementation of STEM Education in schools.

Some time ago Megan #bestteachingpartnerever(from a distance) and I were approached by STEM Punks to share our journey of creating a Makerspace with a focus on using literature. We were happy to chat to Fiona about the way we worked together to engage our girls in being creative, innovative and imaginative in our library space which flowed over into our Makerspaces.

The article can be found on pages 10 and 11 here. 

The video below introduces the concepts of STEM Punk.
