Follett proudly offers Makerspace bundles, project kits, and select 3D printers for PreK-12 school libraries and classrooms. Makerspace is an exciting initiative that brings exploration, creativity, and hands-on learning to the library and beyond. With Makerspaces, students work on their own or in teams to build, create, learn, and solve.
Covering topics like robotics, physics, coding, electricity, and more, our Makerspace starter bundles for schools include full project kits and paired books to encourage further relevant reading.
- Engage students in hands-on projects
- Develop problem-solving skills and encourage self-direction
- Foster teamwork, decision-making, creativity, and higher-level thinking
