Learn more about the MakerSpace at Ballard High School

With students turning to school libraries as a space for time away from the more academic aspects of school, MakerSpaces are increasingly popular. Five high schools in the Seattle Public School

District (SPS) currently have resources dedicated to MakerSpace activities. MakerSpaces provide students with a creative outlet and opportunities for de-stressing, social emotional learning, and collaboration. This project set out to design facilitated and unfacilitated projects and programming for students at Ballard High School through the library MakerSpace. Informed by student feedback, the result is a project bank of activities, kits and workshops that can be used in MakerSpaces anywhere. ~ University of Washington.
