What Does Our Makerspace Strive For?
Our intent as a community of educators and makers is to facilitate instruction that reinforces interdisciplinary concepts. Our makerspace serves as a classroom extension; providing tools, resources and a framework for linking making with school wide learning goals. Intentionality in project design guides and validates our maker practices.
In addition to conceptual learning, our maker curriculum aims to provide students with foundational skills in material fabrication, traditional craft and 3D design. These skills can be scaled and applied to contemporary building practices. By providing kids with tools, technology and relevant skills, we empower them manipulate, create and impact their physical world.
