Here’s What Folks Have to Say About Heather!

She was engaging and knowledgeable, thought provoking and entertaining, a great combination.

This session helped open my eyes to the limitless possibilities of implementing the maker philosophy of learning. Heather gave us tons of information and resources. I learned a lot.

I arrived in this session without being familiar with the term Makerspace. I realized that this is exactly what I am hoping to improve during the next school year for Applied Technology and Applied Mathematics. I just did not know that was the term. This was a helpful presentation.
