Does your school have a makerspace (or innovation lab, or idea lab, or ...)? Why? As more and more schools are adding makerspaces (or innovation lab, or idea lab, or ...) to their programs, we want to ask educators to reflect on the goals of these spaces in their respective communities. In this interactive session, we will present some frameworks to help educators think about possible purpose(s) and intention(s) underlying these learning spaces and guide participants through some self-reflection exercises in order to help them begin to answer this big "why" question. We will also leverage some of the tools of design thinking to help us strive towards understanding. While we cannot guarantee that you will come out of this session with an answer in hand, you will leave this session with ideas and questions to take back to your schools, so you are prepared to tackle this "why" question with your colleagues.
