Makerspace

​The Library runs a Makerspace every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during big lunch. A Makerspace is a place for students to freely create, innovate, collaborate, and problem solve. Students have access to a variety of arts & crafts items, tools and STEM materials to encourage students to become creators and problem-solvers.
The Makerspace provides access to materials some students may not have at home, and we hope to ignite and inspire creative pursuits.
Last semester students made tall towers from paddle pop sticks, trebuchets from straws, light-up Fathers’ Day cards and took apart old computers and cameras to reuse parts.  Activities this term include yarn heart cards for St Valentine’s Day, Computer Bugs, straw shapes – all things that can safely happen in the library.  And, of course, we have the vertical Lego Wall to be creative with at breaktimes.
We look forward to seeing students create and make some exciting things this year!
