WES Maker SpaceWhat is a Maker Space?
A Maker Space is a learning environment with possibility! It is a gathering place for students to connect with others to work on real and meaningful projects using a variety of tools. It is a creation station! Students use our media center all of the time to complete projects. The Maker Space gives them a dedicated area with supplies to come together to collaborate and create.
Our Maker Space Goal:
In today’s society, our kids have lost their creativity. They want everything to be spoon fed to them. The goal of our Maker Space is to reignite the creativity of our students by giving them opportunities to discover, explore, and understand through “making”.
Who can use the Maker Space?
All students are welcome to use our Library Maker Space! Teachers reward students with passes to the Maker Space for finishing work early, for improved behaviors or grades, or even just because. The Maker Space is open throughout the school day and our staff loves to help our students as they create!
Maker Space Expectations:
Students will be expected to follow our library rules when using the Maker Space.
Be Respectful - Stay on task and use quiet voices. Listen to the ideas of other students.
Be Responsible - Clean up after yourself and keep the Maker Space area neat. Help one another.
Be Safe - Keep hands, feet, and other objects to yourself.
To continue our Maker Space, we need supplies! We welcome any donations that you might have lying around collecting dust. Hopefully our students can put these supplies to good use! Click here for a guideline of supplies. Thanks so much for your support of the WES Media Program!
