My Project

Safety is a top priority during every Makerspace lesson. Students utilize many tools, including scissors and glue guns.

The addition of Makedo materials will provide student-friendly tools to work safely and efficiently with cardboard.

Cardboard is used during many of the Makerspace lessons as students are working through the Engineering Design Process to solve problems. Cardboard can be hard to cut for little hands. The addition of 2 Makedo kits will add 4 safety saws, 2 fold-rollers, 2 "scru-drivers", 4 mini-tools, and 240 reusable "scrus." Our Makers will use these student tools again and again for years to come. Thank you for supporting our hard-working Makers!
