AASL Makerspace

Booth # 649 |  NEW THIS YEAR! AASL will have a Makerspace located on the exhibit floor. Considered a “recreational center for the mind” the space will provide an opportunity for participatory learning along with a fun takeaway for all attendees. In addition, an ongoing interactive project will progress with the conference, so that all attendees can add their unique ‘piece’ to the conference makerspace. Attendees will have the opportunity to see how they can set up a makerspace in their school library that supports the school curriculum.
