March Maker Space Month
Students explored various maker space stations in the Learning Lounge this past week. All stations were self-directed encouraging students to tinker, problem solve, create and most importantly work together. Whether they were disassembling printers, creating a wind tunnel or manipulating Spheros all students were intently engaged. Kudos to all staff involved in creating such a fun and educational space.
