Makerspaces in School Wins Teachers’ Choice Award for Professional Development
PUBLISHED: Monday, January 06, 2020

AUSTIN, Texas—Prufrock Press’s Makerspaces in School: A Month-by-Month Schoolwide Model for Building Meaningful Makerspaces has received a prestigious 2020 Teachers’ Choice Award. The book, by Lacy Brejcha, provides educators with the tools that they need to successfully implement a meaningful Makerspace in the classroom.

The Teachers’ Choice Awards honor products of exceptional quality and outstanding performance in the classroom and at home. The Professional Development category recognizes useful tools that help educators “up their professional development game.” 

Organized into an easy-to-follow, month-by-month plan for implementation, this book provides field-tested and research-based knowledge that will serve educators as they create and maintain a meaningful Makerspace. Although science, technology, engineering, arts, and math have made huge gains in the past decade, STEAM jobs are not being filled at the rate they are being created or needed. Makerspaces in School promotes innovative thinking in students that fills this need. Through Makerspaces, project-based learning provides opportunities for credible, legitimate, and authentic growth and development. This book will allow any educator to walk away with a plan to create a Makerspace in his or her classroom or a school- or districtwide model that works for many. Makerspaces are very fluid places—each is unique in its own way!
