“Learn by making.” The Makerspace is dedicated to tinkering, creating, exploring, and making. Part science lab, technology center, workshop, and think-tank, this diverse space provides a unique learning environment. This exciting offering gives students a wide range of creative opportunities to brainstorm and work collaboratively, while learning that all ideas are worthwhile and should be considered and explored. Emphasis will be placed on failing without fear, learning to refine and evaluate ideas, and communicating effectively, while using new tools and re-purposing materials. Projects include a Lego wall, coding simple robots, and building out of recycled materials.
