Welcome to the world of Placentinkers! We are proud to showcase our new and evolving Makerspace. It is a place for us to explore, design, create, tinker, collaborate and connect using the principles of Design Thinking.
Placentinkers are Thinkers!
Design Thinking is a way to foster empathy, creativity and innovation. It’s a growth mindset where students learn the value of mistakes and see them as opportunities for growth and learning.
Concepts like Makerspace and Design Thinking help students relate their core subjects to the real world and gives them a hands-on learning experience.
In our Placentinker makerspace we strive to support and promote literacy. Each maker session starts with a book related to the theme or project for that month. In addition to reading, writing and research we also support digital, coding and invention literacies.
