The current trend for media centers is making them into Makerspaces. Makerspaces are spaces where children can design and create using critical thinking skills, problem solving skills and creativity.
I saw the idea for a Lego Wall at a technology conference I attended last year and asked Tara Harris to help me design and install the wall. Tara went above and beyond what I had seen at the tech fair and designed a wall that blends in perfectly with our decorations.
It is so cool to see the children designing "science labs", "sideway bridges", "secret passages", etc. I love to walk by and try to listen into their conversations. Here are a few pictures of several of the new Makerspaces type activities we have in the media center.
