What is a maker club?
A group of students of varying interests and skill levels, with a mentor and a space to make. Members are involved in open-ended projects that they can share and exhibit at a showcase event (Maker Faire).
How does this support student learning?
Students will be participants of the Maker Movement. They will learn by using Design Thinking. Our clubs environment is designed so that student learning is very self-directed. Making will support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) learning and help prepare students for the jobs of our future.
Why should I make?
Making is fun and rewarding. You can create what you want. Making is a foundation. The world is full of amazing inventions and you can turn your ideas into realities. You will have a deeper understanding of how things work, become a critical-thinker, problem-solver and innovator.
What can I make?
Anything from 3D design and printing, coding, and augmented reality to a cardboard box and duct tape. If you can imagine it, you can make it!
