"In the worlds of makerspaces, nobody speaks with a more credible voice than Laura Fleming. In her highly anticipated second book, Laura lays out a clear blueprint for those who wish to create a makerspace, and she provides countless inspiring examples that beautifully illustrate what a thriving makerspace looks like in action! A must-have!"

This hands-on guide moves readers from brainstorming and planning, to selecting resources, and ultimately to the needed concrete steps to designing the makerspaces today’s modern learners need! This dynamic guide will undoubtedly serve as a centerpiece for your authentic learning toolkit."  -- Thomas C. Murray, Director of Innovation
