MakerSpace

Integrating STEAM in the Curriculum

The MakerSpace encourages and promotes the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math with the curriculum through the experience of "making."  Using the MakerSpace allows students to create, build, tear down, design, remake, and explore, giving them hands-on experience with the curriculum concepts.  Working together and communicating with one another to bounce ideas around and to solve problems is key to the MakerSpace experience.  The students are using high level thinking skills and literacy skills to communicate their ideas, plan their work, and create a product collaboratively.  Thus, by "learning thorugh making" students are making authentic connections between what they are learning and real world 21st century skills.
