Our Makerspace

In a time when most schools are prioritizing math and reading, and devoting more time to these subjects while reducing or eliminating such things as art, recess, and music, why would we offer time to tinker in a makerspace? In the words of Sir Ken Robinson, in one of the most watched TED Talk of all times, “Creativity is as important now in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.“ (I highly recommend watching the TED Talk.) We can’t predict what skills our children will need in a world 5, 10, or 20 years from now, but we know that the ability to think creatively, problem solve, and innovate will set them up for success.


What are the benefits of a Makerspace?

  • Providing the opportunity to innovate

  • Creating real-world applications for classroom concepts

  • Learning to take failure in stride

  • Exposing students to new opportunities

  • Building critical thinking and problem-solving skills

  • Developing a wide range of 21st century skills

And the best part? The students love makerspace!
