CHMS MakerSpace

At Camels Hump Middle School, our Makerspace is an afterschool program that is open to all. We invite students to come explore, make, socialize and be creative.

Our Makerspace attempts to give students device-free time to do things that are not scripted or part of their regular school day. We do not have rubric-based expectations for students; we encourage them to have fun and explore. So much of our students' days are filled with what they have to do, what is planned and required. We want Makerspace to be more free-flowing and fun for students to explore their own interests.

CHMS Makerspace happens Thursday after school from 2:40 - 3:30 pm for the 2018-2019 school year. We are located in the back lab area of the library. All CHMS students are welcome. If you are interested in joining us, please talk with Mr. Madden or Ms. Campbell.
