Design Challenges in Makerspaces: How to Develop Student Creativity

Design challenges have the power to encourage creativity in your students – by providing limitations and guidelines, students can actually become more creative. Learn strategies for creating design prompts, running challenges, and incorporating the design process into projects with your students. We’ll discuss several specific design challenges and offer examples of prompts that can work in these challenges. This presentation will help you find inspiration and feel equipped to lead your students through design challenges that will spark their creative genius. (Note: This is an updated version of a previous presentation)

My book that I co-wrote along with Colleen and Aaron Graves.  Much of this presentation is based off of the content of this book, so if you find this presentation valuable, you’ll probably like the book too.

In this book, we go into depth about how to create a maker culture within your school, develop an interactive learning space and more.  We discuss the logistics of hosting maker workshops, creating design challenge prompts and documenting the learning process.
