Donations for Creativity Station/Maker Space

This year, we are in the process of transforming one of our traditional computer labs into a space that allows for creativity and exploration with technology (chrome books)as a resource.

Sometimes these spaces are called Maker Spaces.

What is Maker Space? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLEJLOB6fDw


This is an exciting opportunity to create a flexible space for all students K - 5 to use. We are requesting the following donations to begin stocking the SWE Creation Station.


* Old games or puzzles with missing pieces

* Legos

* Straws

* Tape & Glue

* Paper towel/toilet paper cardboard rolls

* Tongue depressors

* Beads/old jewelry


Really anything consumable that will allow students to build, create and explore!

If you are planning on attending, please do the following:


1. Ensure you have scanned your license at SWE before Monday, 11/12.

2. Respond to the Google Form, https://goo.gl/forms/2sa0Bc596sI3IDnn2, to RSVP. If you have scanned your license this year at SWE, we will print a badge and have it waiting in a Fast Track line.


If you do not scan you license prior, please know you will wait in line to do it the day of the feast.
