maker sites for makerspaces projectsThe Maker Movement has been moving at a rapid pace for many years now.  Over the last 2-3 years, it’s been starting to really take hold in schools and libraries specifically.  I love looking at our daily Twitter feed and seeing schools all across the world making over rooms that have gone to waste so they can convert them into makerspaces.  It’s a true recycling program.  It’s also fascinating to hear about the process each school or library goes thru in designing their makerspace because each location is unique and every budget tight.  I personally love it when the students or end users are involved in the design or planning process.  This gives them a vested interest in the project and makes them want it to succeed along with the school.   If you’re in the process of making a makerspace or if you have one already set up, we would love to see it.  Please tweet us photos at @Makerspaces_com along with any questions you may have.

The best thing about a makerspace is making things and learning along the way!  Here are some great sites to help you find your next maker project.  Where else do you go to find inspiration for your makerspace projects?  Let us know in the comment section and continue the discussion.
