A Tinker Space for a Creative Community

Help me give my students the chance to flex their creative minds in the Tinker Space of their dreams.

My Students

Our students are a creative bunch, actively learning how to be kind, responsible, and active members of their community. What they learn and create in the classroom spreads into the hallways, into the streets, and into the lives of everyone around them.

My Project

Throughout the pandemic, our students have shown themselves to be a resilient bunch and have found ways to stay connected.

This past year, our new Tinker Space has been used to reconnect students to their classmates, classes to each other, and our school to the surrounding community.

I'm looking to furnish our tinker space with additional supplies, equipment, and ideas that will further our school's mission to spread arts across the curriculum and keep us connected to the community.

These resources will introduce our younger students to enriching STEAM activities and challenge our older students to push their creativity to new levels.
