Whats Happening - Oct 2016

Check it Out: MakerSpace Monday

"A makerspace is a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. "

“What do you do in a makerspace? The simple answer is you make things. Things that you are curious about. Things that spring from your imagination. Things that inspire you and things that you admire. The informal, playful atmosphere allows learning to unfold, rather than conform to a rigid agenda. Making, rather than consuming is the focus. It is craft, engineering, technology and wonder-driven.”
