What is Makerspace? It is a hands-on set of activities, using both materials and technology devices, which are designed to foster 21st Century Problem-Solving Skills in our students. These skills include: Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking, and Collaboration. Students use an Engineering Design Plan to reach the various activity goals. Both the skills and the use of a designed plan can help students achieve academic and personal goals in school classes as well as in life situations. (Click here for a more in-depth program description.) In grades PreK through 5th, Makerspace consists of a weekly lesson in which both planned and spontaneous hands-on lessons introduce and encourage the development of the problem-solving and planning skills. The Middle School Makerspace program is a 6th grade class five days per week during the spring semester in which the problem-solving skills and engineering design plan experiences are more fully 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.
