Introducing the Shipley Lower School Makerspace

on September 25, 2015


The Lower School has created a new Maker Space this year which connects to science room  We have the following stations in the room – the Build-it corner, robotics and electronics, craft corner, take-it-apart and tinker, and the recycling station.  5th Graders will use the room every “I” day for their innovation projects.  Thanks to Brooke Donovan and Debra Finger for helping to set up the room.  Thanks for colleagues Chris Fornaro, Bethany Silva, Wendy Eiteljorg who have inspired me to create this innovative space.  We have been inspired by teachers and students around the country who have been making and building in the classroom.  Can’t wait to see what kids can create!
