Can you imagine a learning space where nature, music, art, and literature are infused in the design of the STE-A-M focused classroom? A kindergarten classroom for students of all ages? A place where tea is served at the start and end of each day in beautiful porcelain cups - where there are no bells or specific transitions and subjects are infused by "Big Ideas or Themes"? A classroom that celebrates community through nutritious food prepared each day by students who gather at a cafe bar or surround a kitchen table and prompted by deep discussions of innovation and creativity?

Let us think critically about the importance and value of learning environments and its impact on the Maker (Do-it-Yourself) culture. Let us examine the history of Makers and talk about the value of nurturing students and community through the design of ‘space’ as a key component to achieving truly innovative classrooms and people.

Let us talk about it and find out what the research says. Why Tea? Why an indoor garden? Why a cafe bar? Why Knitting or Sewing? Why Cooking? Why Art? Why Chess or Games? Why Guitar/Piano? Why Kitchen Table? Why Livingroom? Why 3D printer? Why 1:1 Computers? Why light? Why Music? Why Blogs? Why Programming?
