My Students

My school building has such a wonderful variety of students who would all greatly benefit by having this project funded. As we are developing as a school and community, I have personally seen the benefits of STEAM or STEM related activities or Makerspace for all children.

The specific benefits of this project are promoting teamwork, improving creativity, develop problem solving and critical thinking skills, improve communication, persistence and overall self-esteem.

Maker projects start with an open mindset allowing students opportunities to make mistakes but try again, reassuring them that mistakes can oftentimes lead to new discoveries.

My Project

By providing a Lego Makerspace will create endless opportunities for students to have a workspace where they can share information, experiment, create and learn! Students will use the Lego bricks and intuitive buildings system to create the perfect prototype.

Lego Makerspace starts with curiosity.

Students start with a creation and refine their project until they are able to arrive to the best solution by modifying and retesting applying the Engineering Design Process.

Lego Makerspace provides opportunities for all students to build their own unique, creative confidence while working through a design and creative design process. Empathy and social emotional development is a natural part of maker-centered learning!

Lego Makerspace will create a learning environment without limits!
