Makerspace

  • Makerspace is an exciting, innovative way to teach technology, cooperation, and design.  Imagine a challenge to create a design for a new invention, and given various tools and a team to work.  We do more organized and structured STEAM projects in our Too-Awesome Tuesday classes, but a makerspace event allows students the freedom to start from scratch, and use a variety of materials.  

    Here are some exciting articles about the Makerspace concept.
