    Description: Join us on December 14 to pick up practical takeaways and strategies for creating a culture of making in your library from Alisha Wilson (teacher-librarian at Booker T. Washington High School in Pensacola, FL) the 2017 Follett Challenge program contest winner in the high school category. Topics covered will include how to start a Spark Lab (resource space) for students with little to no funding, how to utilize library assistants as "Lead Innovators" of your program, how to use themes, challenges, and events to motivate high school students in the space, and how to start revolving "mess kits" to keep the activities in your space fresh. This session will benefit those who may have purchased a few maker items but are not sure how to keep the momentum going with teens, those who want to take their program to the next level, or those who are wanting to start the transformation of their space to attract more student visits.
