This year, we transformed our old computer lab into a flexible learning space and Maker Space. We named out new space the Fab Lab. Setting up flexible learning environments are EXPENSIVE. It seems that adding the word education to a product has the same effect as adding wedding.
While we did purchase some furniture from education suppliers, coming to our financial rescue was IKEA. We found some super cool additions to our space that didn't break the bank and helped us to pull together something that looks amazing.
Extra seats.... on the cheap!
