In 2017 I was invited to be the Benjamin Franklin International School, Barcelona's first 'Maker in Residence'. The work combined my educator experience in creative technologies, digital fabrication and product design, and my work supporting the development of community resources and makerspaces in Ireland.

I was tasked to design and implement a makerspace in the school's former cafeteria, decide upon and calibrate the technologies for the space, provide training for two members of staff who would manage the space after I left, and design and deliver a maker-centered learning curriculum for year 10 students

To facilitate the design proccess for the makerspace, a design team comprising a variety of stakeholders was created. Over a series of workshops we collaboratively and iteratively developed a design and a list of tools, materials and equipment to stock the space.
