5. The right tools
Think about what you want students to be able to do in the MakerSpace and the tools they will need for this to happen. Will your students need hammer and nails, wood, cardboard, glue, screwdrivers, 3D printers, computers, etc.? Having the right tools available to your students is key. Explore what tools you want your students to have access to.
A Makerspace has the potential to become a very messy and cluttered space. Adequate storage with clear labels is important. Plus, storage should be accessible to the students, so they can reach what they need without having to ask for help. Students also need a clear space to work so any non-essential items like school bags etc should be placed neatly away from the working spaces.
7. First aid kit
Every space at a school should have a first aid kit, and the Makerspace is no different. Minor injuries are sometimes a part of the making process, and its always good to be prepared.
