How to Create a Makerspace -- And Why Schools Need To
Makerspaces, fab labs, innovation stations-- whatever you call them, every student needs a place to brainstorm, collaborate and prototype with 21st century tools and materials. Such spaces promote mastery of new career, tech and science standards, but more importantly, prepare students for the modern workforce, a tech-based economy, and a productive and rewarding life. From no budget to half a million dollars; from a set of boxes in a media center corner, to a lab with 3D printers and laser cutters; we’ll experience what making means; plot out spaces; and discuss funding, tools, and enduring partnerships.

1 CEFM 

Attendees needing to receive a Certificate of Attendance must be scanned at the conclusion of the program.

Diversity Dialogues: School & Community Courageous Conversations
The Superintendents of Mercer County made a collective commitment to focus all Mercer County high schools on diversity issues, and partnered with the Center for Supportive Schools. The result was a powerful forum, attended by teams of students and educators from every high school in the county, for conversation, awareness and action around issues of race, gender, and class. Participants in this Action Lab will (a) experience hands-on activities used to create safe space for these conversations; (b) consider best practices that define Mercer County’s commitment to diversity work; and (c) explore their own options for developing Diversity Dialogues.
