Makerspace Donations Needed!
What is a makerspace? In simple terms, it is an area that allows students to engage in hands-on learning experiences that are creative, inventive and make real-life connections. In this space, students will have the freedom to design, engineer, fabricate, create, build and collaborate. I am so excited to offer this opportunity to our students, but in order to have a space that is functional; we are in need of supplies to support the project. Following is a list of needed items.
