Makerspaces! What's Going on in RILINK Schools?: Connections

"Our hope is that the agents of change will be the students themselves." -- Makerspace Playbook School Edition, Spring 2013

Ways to Expand and Connect

Build partnerships!

  • Place students in leadership and instructional roles
  • Short on free time during the school day? Form an after-school club
  • Overwhelmed? Not handy yourself? Tap into the talents and enthusiasm of colleagues, friends, parents, volunteers
  • Are there companies / organizations / colleges / clubs in town who can share their expertise?
  • Is your library too small? Organize a parking lot / field day / gymnasium / cafeteria maker event
  • Co-sponsor a maker event with / at your local public or academic library 
  • Promote, promote, promote!
