I am the school librarian for a campus of three high schools in Brooklyn. For a decade, our campus had no library or librarian, and the space was left to fester. Now, I have been brought in to bring the space back to life once our renovation is done.
Our students are bright, hard-working, and in need of engaging material.
We've recently opened a Makerspace in the library, and students have requested a variety of projects to help them gain life skills.
Once the Makerspace on our campus was established, students began submitting ideas for projects and skills they would like to learn. The skills they most wanted to learn were video game design, jewelry making, screen printing, and sewing.
The students feel that these skills will help them to develop themselves as potential entrepreneurs, as well as being able to creatively express themselves.
We will start off with hands-on skills, such as the sewing and jewelry making. We are lucky enough to have access to sewing machines, but we do need basic sewing supplies to go with them. We also need some peripherals to be added to a computer which has been set up to run Unity and to run stop-motion animation software. The peripherals are included in this project. Also included are the necessary materials for learning to screen print.
