NCKLS Makerspace Kits

What are they and How Do they work?

What are Makerspace Kits?

NCKLS’s Maker Kits contain projects and books that provide libraries with the opportunity to experiment with the Maker Space movement.

The included materials create four or five different projects for an experience-based program where teens and tweens learn how different things work and can try their hands at something new.

How do they work?

  • Kits are checked out for 2 months
  • Kits can only be checked out to libraries
  • All materials in the kits must be returned to NCKLS
  • Courier, van, or mail can be used to transfer the kit
