Maker Space

The school year has started!

 

 You have reached the

Makerspace Page!

 

What is Makerspace? It is a hands-on set of activities, using both materials and technology devices, which are designed to foster 21st century skills in our students. These skills include:  communication, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. (Click here for a more in-depth program description.) In grades PreK through 5th, makerspace consists of both planned and spontaneous hands-on lessons spent developing 21st century skills. The middle school makerspace program is a 6th grade assigned elective five days per week during the spring semester in which these same skills are explored and developed.

On the sidebar of this page there are links to photos of makerspace activities for various grades. There are also some online activity links. As always, students should only use online links with parent/teacher permission and supervision.
