Our STEAM Makerspace is a new innovative space where students will learn to design, explore, engineer and a lot more.
Our school is medium sized in population, but filled with students who have a love for innovation and learning!
Our school is a Title I, with students who come from a variety of different economic backgrounds. Over 73% of our students receive free lunch. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics with 14% of our students with disabilities and 7% in the gifted and talented program. We are also home to a STEAM program where our students conduct research regularly and complete projects for Project Based Learning in their classrooms.
As my students learn to navigate the engineering design process, it is important that they learn how to problem solve in many ways. In my class we think like engineers with building and designing using different materials.
Keva Planks will allow students to take simple machines and turn them into inventive design!
It is amazing what they come up with, from houses and structures to creative design only they can imagine. With these planks, the sky is the limit.
These materials extend beyond individual creations. Students learn to collaborate with others to extend their designs and/or incorporate ideas from other too. I can not wait to see what they create!
