No Prep Makerspace Activities are perfect for busy librarians and staff who run makerspaces. Just print and leave them out for anyone to use without additional prep!

Are you looking for ways to build community or keep the community going strong? Are you searching for ways to engage students in collaborative problem solving? These no prep makerspace activities are for you!

Just print out the task cards or station directions and put them out! All you need to add are paper, scissors, and glue or tape.

If you want students to deliberately work through the engineering and design process as they work together, provide them with a challenge journal or recording sheet. Both are perfect ways for groups to record their progress and thinking as they collaboratively work through a challenge.

For a bit more control of what students do, and when they do it during a challenge, use the included slideshow to facilitate the activity!
