At Saginaw Elementary, there is a twist to the traditional makerspace concept. Our idea is simple – EVERY student, EVERY week. This presentation will take participants through our six-month makerspace design process, discussing in detail the initial planning, research & design, and launch phases.   Initial Phase –  • Establishing the “why” • Makerspace Design Team • Securing funding • Reorganizing master schedule • Identifying personnel • Identifying physical space  Research & Design Phase –  • Understanding learners • Selecting themes • Researching materials • Room design  Launch Phase –  • Building excitement • Makerspace Open House • Identifying maker expectations • Establishing routines
