The title isn't an exaggeration - this is indeed a big book of project ideas suitable for makerspace programs in libraries, schools and also for homeschooling. I like the way it covers many different types of technologies, from newer, high-tech stuff such as coding, Little Bits, wearable tech, to classic making involving wood, hardware and lots of boxes, and also to some science experiments.

My one gripe about this book (and about many other ideas for makerspaces) is that their idea of "low cost"

WOW! The book features 51 projects for the makers in our community.
The book lists all of the supplies, time requirement, the STEAM behind each, alternate or further ideas and a rough budget idea (most of them are inexpensive). The book caters perfectly to both the public and school library.

The book is divided into several categories of project types:
Small/Low-Cost: Brush bots, artbots, etc.
using Balloons: hovering ufo/drone
Cardboard and Smart Phone: pepper's ghost or holograms or projectors

A collection of past time activities that are as useful as a game of Solitaire on Windows, which involve far less brain than a game of Minesweeper. Yet, when you are a school worker and want to show the concerned parents how useful was the time they went to the mall for the child locked down in a room, now this can be useful.

Graves goes all in right away with intense projects that are "free-$"--her spaces must be much better equipped and her understand of one dollar sign must be much higher than mine. Regardless, great ideas and projects in here.

Lots of project ideas for you makerspace - keep this as an idea book in your makerspace.

A really helpful compendium of projects for schools that will be incorporating the learning that uniquely comes from a makerspace into their curricula. Graves does a great job of showing how to do each of the projects in the book...illustrations are helpful.

I wonder about the inclusion of Coding in the book, as I would make Coding a separate, non-"makerspace" skill. I think if we were to look at the needs of students going forward they need the crafting/producing skills they're learning in a mak

Nice book and some ideas I could actually do for a STEAM or STEM program.
I loved the homemade record player idea. I want to do this.
