You may have a functional space that works for making and perhaps you are ready for the next level of tools and constructing materials. A big consideration as technology is added to a makerspace is support and usage knowledge. Professional development opportunities are important for successful curricular connections to be made regarding a makerspace. Here is a list of possible “add-ons” to the basic list provided in Wading In. Slowly building up new tools in your maker repertoire can help lead to success!
