Thanks to the blog that I subscribed to which is something I think K-12 benefits.
One of the most common questions we get is in regards to buying makerspace materials. There are a ton of products and supplies out there and it can be overwhelming to pick the right ones especially if you are just starting out. One of the first steps you should do before spending any money is to talk with the people who will be using your makerspace. Some schools and libraries have done formal or informal surveys to capture this data. These surveys can help to determine what projects and areas of interest people are most excited about. But always remember that one of the best parts of maker education is discovery. It’s good to have items that people know they like but always make sure to include projects and products they’ve never used before. Makerspaces are a great way to help students discover new interests and potential career paths.
