Coming Soon

MakerSpace

Each month the library will be providing students with new and different activities to spark their creativity. In October students will have two opportunities to use green screen technology:


  • Stick bots, which use a green screen and a smart phone to create stop motion videos.
  • Create your own poster: using green screens and Photoshop
Students can access the MakerSpace before and after school and during lunch. Teachers can schedule the library to use the MakerSpace resources!
