I have a question for those folks with makerspaces. Mt. Anthony Union Middle School (approximately 600 students, grades 6-8) is about to open their makerspace. We already have a fair amount of devices and equipment to start: 3D printer, Cricut Maker, Silhouette Cameo, cameras (still photo and video), green screen set up, sewing machines, 15 computers, Makey Makeys, Rasperry Pis and 2 Hummingbird kits. I don't know that we're looking to add anything extra for equipment at this time, except Micro:bits. Do you have any thoughts as to a ballpark amount to budget yearly to support the purchase of consumables and allow us to add to our existing equipment, when necessary?
Thank you so much in advance!
