Title Maker Spacers on a budget
Description

The University College London (Qatar campus) will provide this introductory module exploring makerspaces and how making can ignite the imagination and foster learning, with special emphasis on makerspaces in schools.  The maker movement has caught on not only in schools but in wider society, because of its shift from a culture of consumption to one of creation. The course is grounded on the need to establish a new culture of learning and the role of making in stimulating the K-12 learning environment.  It covers the planning of a makerspace in a school, first-hand experience with makerspace technologies, creating a maker culture, and makerspaces supporting the curriculum.
