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?

The new DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Maker Club at EA, for students in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade, will serve as a space for students to engage in a variety of hands-on, STEM-focused projects. The club will empower students to become confident creators and tinkerers who can design and collaborate on projects.

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!

The Maker Movement

Have you heard of the "Maker Movement" that has been sweeping the nation? Whether it's at the White House or at Maker Faire, educators, librarians and many others have been discussing the potential for making in education.

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.
