Using the materials that I had in my makerspace I came up with eight stations for students to explore through the month of March. I created a hyperdoc for them to use to do their research and post their findings.
As soon as students walked in their eyes immediately went to the stations set up in the corner of the media center. I explained what we were going to do, assigned them groups, and they began their research. They learned about computer programmers, aviators, inventors, video game developers, engineers, and construction engineers. As students finished their research they moved to the makerspace stations and the excitement grew as they tried to recreate the inventions or designs of their women.
At each station students were collaborating, problem solving, and creating products to represent their women. Here are some of the products that were created during the first week.
I am looking forward to watching the students discover and create over the next several weeks in our Women's History Makerspace.
