My Students

“Legos—we get to play with Legos? In the library? How, cool!” Students exclaimed these words on the first trial day of Makerspaces in the library. With curriculum being more student-centered and including STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) into the curriculum, students want more time to explore these concepts, while making creations that inspire, and the library is the perfect place to do this.

LKMS is comprised of 387 6th through 8th grade students, with 57% coming from free or reduced price lunch qualifying homes.

Although our school strives to promote rigor and success in the classroom, many of these learning environments are created without any monetary support from the district or state level.

My Project

The library should be the hub of the school and should be a fun place for students to create, invent, and learn. Students should be able to do this, not just from reading books, but from being part of the action.

Makerspaces are defined as a place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge.

Having Makerspaces in our library will allow students to become hands-on by creating robots, coding, and programming.

After learning about Makerspaces last year, I brought Legos, Scrapbooking supplies, coloring books, and games from home. We were also granted three Donor's Choose submissions, but we need to add on to our projects by including new technology STEM materials, such as solar robots, engineered Lego's, and coding materials.

I feel this is needed in our library because not all students love to be outdoors, and having this special environment for students to feel safe and can show creativity will improve student engagement, all while having fun!
