• Encourages the development of important skills, including problem solving and model testing.

• Multi-disciplinary activities create opportunities to invent new structures, games, musical instruments, and more.

• Engineers and makerspace users both design, create, and refine their inventions.

• Readers can think like engineers while trying a variety of hands-on projects that use every-day, easy-to-find objects.

• Uses an inquiry-based approach to encourage readers to experiment with engineering designs and reach their own conclusions about what works and what doesn’t.

• Readers can create their own makerspace at home (whether or not they’ve ever been to another makerspace in a school, library or museum).

• Readers hear about the triumphs, failures, and funny stories of other engineers and inventors.

• Meets the NGSS standards related to Science and Engineering Practices (SEP)

• Aligns with the NSTA concept of 3-Dimensional Learning

• There are 14 times more makerspaces now than there were a decade ago.

• Uses links to online primary sources to engage readers in further, independent study.
