Maker Space Curriculum

Hi  

I teach a makerspace class to middle schoolers. Does anyone know of a good makerspace curriculum?

Thank you!

I hate to say this, Matthew, but a "maker space curriculum" would be like saying a "white board curriculum".  The maker space is a tool, not a subject.  Besides industrial arts, the most ideal curricula that can utilize a maker space would be a science, math, engineering or combine them all into STEM. The maker space has just added to your repetoire for teaching design, etc with hands-on activities.  I have attached a library of STEM activities that could use a makerspace.

Hope this helps,

Gabe
