Maker Education Initiative
CC Mason Elementary Leander ISD
Grass Valley Elementary School Oakland Unified School District
Lighthouse Community Public Schools
Our panel, including a librarian, teacher, director of a makerspace, and a non-profit leader, will discuss and share their observations and experiences in creating successful and sustainable makerspaces in low income and rural schools. Educators in low income and rural communities face challenges in implementing hands-on learning, including financial, cultural, and systemic barriers, which need to be addressed in order to authentically provide maker education for all students.
