My Project

The media center is the hub of our school, but it looks the same as it did almost twenty years ago. We are currently working to transform it. We would love to welcome visitors into a more modern space. Our vision includes new paint and carpet, shorter bookcases that are more accessible to students and new tables with whiteboard tops and casters on the legs so that they can be reconfigured easily for various purposes. We would also like to have some distinct areas for teacher collaboration, Makerspace and charging stations. The stools that we have requested will be featured in our Makerspace section. Students will use the stools when creating and collaborating with other students in the space. Common items in the Makerspace section include Legos, circuit building materials, craft projects, etc. It is our intent to make the media center space available to support a plethora of student activities. Instead of only maintaining a quiet location for individual study, we want to create a collaborative environment. We want to increase the number of students who visit the media center each day and make their visit so enjoyable that they come back often and bring a new friend each time.
