Makerspace Wish List

If you're in the market for a present for the classroom or are cleaning your garage or basement, we might be able to use some of your junk. Before carting it off to Goodwill or the dump, see if it might be something we can use for our growing makerspace!

There are lots of lists floating around the internet these days. Here is a good one (it's giant, but very organized). If you'd rather not scroll through a maker manifesto, check out this list of some everyday basics right here:

DC Motors
batteries
Copper tape
Solar cells
Pipe cleaners
Wire
Switches
Clips
LEDs
Paint pen 
Conductive paint
Circuit stickers
Soldering gun
Solder
Sewing supplies
Screw drivers
Glue gun
CDs
Coat hangers
Fabric
Plastic bins
Cardboard
Basic tools (drill, screwdriver, hammer, etc.)
Magnetic tape
Electrical tape
Wire cutters
Sewable circuits
Felt
You can also learn more about setting up makerspaces with this presentation from Dynamic Landscapes.
