After participating in the New York Hall of Science’s training workshop on designing and developing Maker Space curriculum, Supara Kamolpattana remarked that “participating in this training allowed me to gain a lot of knowledge to develop Maker Space programs. I am excited to have learned about concepts to stimulate the creative and scientific ideas of children which are integrated into each NYSCI activity. Examples include the 3D design activity, which not only taught us how to use online software to do design work but also showed us that the activity can be leveraged to teach children mathematical skills, such as calculating and measuring sizes and creating works of art. Each activity can also help build the 21st century skills of children.”

“I think the Maker Space will create enormous benefits for Thai children, including developing their creative thinking and analytical skills. More importantly, the activities will allow children to learn about STEM naturally. If we can expand the Maker Space to all provinces or in major cities, it will result in a significant positive impact. Moreover, we should integrate Maker Space into the school curriculum, with teachers being trained on how to design, develop, and create Maker-style learning for children.”
