Speaker: Peter Wardrip, Research Scientist, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh

IMLS has partnered with the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh to launch a field-wide initiative to better understand, advance, support, and connect makerspaces in museums and libraries. The project is informed by expert thought partners including Chicago Public Library, North Carolina State University Libraries, Exploratorium, and Maker Education Initiative. This session will introduce an emerging framework for intentional planning and development of makerspaces in museum and library settings to help organizations make informed investments. Ample time will be provided for audience members to ask questions and provide feedback on the framework, which will be released later this year.
