This month Ryan Barnes, DREAM Lab coordinator at Baldwin School led and hosted at Baldwin's DREAM Lab makerspaces in the lower, middle, and upper schools.
Ryan showed us the different spaces, projects, and tools used to ignite inquiry and facilitate hands-on learning at Baldwin. Their fantastic projects ranged from 3D printed bubble wands, to laser cut tessellations to Rube Goldberg machines. After we explored these spaces, we had some thought provoking conversations about the role of technology in makerspaces, including the pros and cons of 3D printers, and the relationship between maker classes and free project time.
Thanks to Ryan Barnes and the Baldwin School for hosting an enjoyable evening!
