    INTRODUCTION TO MAKERSPACE

    During this one semester course, students will work in a collaborative learning environment where they will come together to share materials and learn new skills. Students will celebrate the process of design and making, which includes overcoming challenges, so that they start to believe they can solve any problem. Students will gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials such as craft and recycled materials, electronic kits, building sets (such as Legos and K’nex), robotics, and the Cricut cutting machine. Through this hands-on learning students will be better prepared to work in a collaborative working environment. Students will also have knowledge of working with some machines and basic coding.
