DIY Maker Club
Join the New K-2nd DIY Maker Club every Wednesday at 3 PM!
Does Your Child Like to Create, Tinker, and Make Things?
Together, we will explore everything from building with cardboard to making a working circuit. Over the course of the year, topics we discuss could include robotics, computer programming, engineering, electronics, and other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) projects. The club will be student-driven and developmentally appropriate for young children.
To facilitate deeper learning and opportunities for more one-on-one support, the club will be limited to 12 students, four from each grade.
Everyone can be a Maker!
Construction tools for creativity - create, play, and imagine!
The big idea is that anyone can become anything just by trying - we all learn by doing.
Engineering toys for girls - Meet Goldie, the girl inventor who loves to build!
The Maker Movement
Organizations and experts have come together to create the Maker Education Initiative. Their mission is to "create more opportunities for young people to make, and, by making, build confidence, foster creativity, and spark interest in science, technology, engineering, math, the arts—and learning as a whole. We want young people to join—and eventually lead—the growing Maker Movement." My hope is that the EA K-2nd DIY Maker Club can be one part of creating these opportunities in Lower School.
