What Happens In A Makerspace?

In a recent Grant Wood AEA article, Librarian Chelsea Sims, from SEJH, shares a little bit about what you might find in one of our secondary school Makerspaces and how the spaces are being used in our schools.  The ICCSD Foundation funded Makerspaces in all ICCSD secondary schools in 2016.
