Today is the day, dear readers! Today I can reveal to you the cover of the makerspace project book that Aaron Graves and I have been working on all year! You get to see it before Amazon even!
Here is the blurb from Amazon:
“Start-to-finish, fun projects for makers of all types, ages, and skill levels!
Written by two school librarians obsessed with making stuff, this easy-to-follow guide is full of hands-on, low-cost makerspace projects that will inspire inventors and makers of all ages. The Big Book of Makerspace Projects: Inspiring Makers to Experiment, Create, and Learn features practical tips for beginners and open-ended challenges for advanced makers.
The book features dozens of classroom-tested, hands-on DIY projects and challenges. Each project features clear, non-technical step-by-step instructions with photos and illustrations to ensure success, expand the imagination, and foster innovation. You will explore recyclables hacks, smartphone tweaks, paper and sewing circuits, e-textiles, musical instruments, coding and programming, 3-D printing, and much, much more!
• Fun projects spur the creativity of makers at every skill level
• Covers trending technology such as littleBits, Makey Makey, and Sphero
• Authored by a pair of experienced educators and dedicated makers”
