Mission Statement: 


The Maker space/Innovation Lab will be a resource-rich space that takes a multidisciplinary approach to help develop Kennedy School students’ 21st century skills, - information and communications technology (ICT) literacy, and ultimately prepare students to respond better to a future that is yet to be defined. Through collaborative, creative, problem-solving activities that include technology, robotics, and kids’ natural passion for hands-on learning, the Makerspace/Innovation Lab will connect learning to life outside the classroom.
