As new materials are introduced into our MakerSpace, storage and organization continues to be a problem. Because of this, I used this problem to walk my students through Genius Hour learning. (Funny thing is, the kids thought this was just a "fake" example until changes started occurring in the space). I was able to repurpose some cube shelving from another school in the district. The district carpenter was thrilled to find them a new home! Because of this new storage wall, I was able to remove 2 wire shelves and create some much needed workspace in the MakerSpace and provide more storage for student projects in another area of the library. Happiness is an organized workspace!
