How can we foster creativity and problem-solving skills? How can we engage students in STEM and STEAM? One great way is through the Makerspace. This week we chat with Mike Bycraft, the Head of Design and Innovation at a major international school in Korea. He tells us about all of the amazing things he’s doing at his school’s Makerspace and what educators of all age groups can do to encourage creativity to help their students innovate.
