What is a MAKERSPACE?
An area in the school where learners are allowed to critically think, create, collaborate and communicate.
The MakerSpace can be a mix of high-tech and low-tech activities.
The MakerSpace is multi-disciplinary using elements of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. (STEAM)

"Children at birth are natural scientists, engineers, and problem-solvers. Yet, research documents that by the time students reach fourth grade, a third of boys and girls have lost an interest in science." -US News
"According to the U.S. Department of Education, all STEM jobs in the U.S. will increase 14 percent from 2010-2020, accounting for millions of positions. Yet, data shows that 3 million of those jobs will go unfilled by 2018." -Education Insider
Once they grasp core concepts, students are able to choose a problem and use their own creativity and curiosity to research, design, test and improve a viable solution.
For students, it’s using their heads and hands to find and build solutions, collaborate, have fun and stay interested in STEM.
Learners need the opportunity to develop creative thinking and problem solving skills. Learners need an area to invent and learn.

What do we need to create a MakerSpace?
If you can imagine it,
you can build it!
We have a former computer lab waiting to be turned into a MakerSpace!
