What is a makerspace?

“What do you do in a makerspace? The simple answer is you make things. Things that you are curious about. Things that spring from your imagination… that inspire you and things that you admire. The informal, playful atmosphere allows learning to unfold, rather than conform to a rigid agenda. Making, rather than consuming is the focus. It is craft, engineering, technology and wonder-driven.” Thinkers and Tinkerers

In our Makerspace we will

  • Utilize physical and digital tools to solve a problem or create something new
  • Build or take apart representations of models
  • Encourage critical thinking, design thinking, tinkering, experimenting, building,
  • Emphasize fun and engagement
