Laura Fleming, author of Worlds of Making: Best Practices for Establishing a Makerspace for Your School, is a leader in Maker culture, next-generation teaching methods, and implementing Transmedia into education. She’s also been a mentor to Lyka’s Adventure since it’s inception 4 years ago when it was only an educational experiment under the title Robot Hearts Stories.
