Welcome to Makerspace!!!! Notes from Ms. Kramer...
Our Makerspace is an environment for exploration, innovation, and fun! It’s a creative space in which students design and build physical and digital products -- from cardboard creatures with moving parts to animated food chains, LED-lit greeting cards, 3D print designs, and unsinkable boats.
More important than the products are the Makerspace processes that build empathy, problem-solving skills, and design thinking as kids design, create, fail, fail again, recover, share, and soar! Their Makerspace work also often will deepen and extend understanding of big ideas across content areas.
Check back often! This page will be updated with photos and blurbs about what students are working on.
Try. Fail. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
-- Samuel Beckett
- Failure recovery goes hand-in-hand with a growth mindset in which we see ourselves as capable of growing abilities to accomplish great things
- An ethic of excellence and a growth mindset transform learning
- The abilities to collaborate and communicate effectively are essential
Makerspace Vision: Students will be resilient makers and innovators who use design thinking; the engineering design process; and skills with high tech and manual tools to construct creative solutions to complex challenges.
