Makerbox: No Space Required #pla2014

In case you missed it, this session was the place to be this morning.  500 librarians filled the room to learn all about creating a maker space without a dedicated space.  The trick is to make boxes containing all of your supplies and trade between libraries!

The session started off with a competitive marshmallow challenge between 2 teams.  This a great activity for both kids an teens.  The four speakers then discussed how they got a grant to put their Maker Boxes together and programs that spawned from them.

While my library can’t do something on this scale, I am really intrigued with the concept of smaller Maker Boxes for our community to use, especially our local teachers.
