New Shelving

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!
