Every student has maker potential. An educator’s role is to manifest the maker mindset. That requires creating irresistible school makerspaces — incubators that get students excited to collaborate, think, tinker, design and build tangible products that solve real-world problems. Failure is expected, and welcomed. However, it takes creative thinking to make these DIY spaces. The best ones are a buzzy blend of science lab, woodshop, computer lab and art room that support project-based learning pedagogy.
