As part of the grant, East has been provided with the materials and support to create a maker space in the media center. The maker movement has been around for quite some time, but is now catching on in schools. Click here to learn more about the maker movement and what it looks like for students. Another resource that discusses how the maker movement is transforming education can be found here.


Below you will find links and information about some of the technologies that will be available for use in the EFHS Maker Space. This site is intended to provide a brief overview. A more in-depth Google Site with tutorials and helpful tips will be available soon.
