Resources from the Makerspaces in the Library: Full STEAM Ahead workshop

The Makerspaces in the Library: Full STEAM Ahead workshop was held 20 May 2014 at the Ripon Public Library.

Shannon Barniskis talked about how the Lomira QuadGraphics Community Library joined the makerspace movement; led hands-on experiences with soldering, makey-makey, Drawdio, Octolively, and a 3D printer; discussed possibilities for instituting makerspaces in libraries; and tied it into the library's mission.  In addition, Arielle Loy talked about Neenah Public Library's Makerspace.
