My students need materials to supply a new makerspace to enhance their hands-on learning, collaborative skills and problem-solving skills.
My students are creative, curious, thoughtful and eager to explore! They desire hands-on activities so they can problem solve and create unique ways to design a solution. They are comfortable with technology and are eager to learn more about new tools and devices that will aid their learning.
My students need supplies and tools to allow them to enhance their learning through creative design and exploration.
Students learn best through active methods that allow them to build, design and experiment on their own.
Our public school is located in Illinois and we have many students from various backgrounds and socioeconomic levels. I want to help them all learn and grow through access to a school-wide makerspace.
My students need a makerspace that they can utilize to expand and shape their learning. Makerspaces contain various supplies, like art supplies, craft supplies tools, manipulatives, etc. which allow students the flexibility to explore and create which enhances what they learn in class. This Makerspaces will help encourage creativity in my students which will help them develop better problem-solving and collaborative skills which they will need throughout their lifetime.
Makerspaces allow students to choose the materials they want to use to illustrate their learning.
For instance, for a 6th grade Planetary Science unit, students may use the makerspace materials to make a scale model of the planets. Perhaps they would use the cloth measuring tape to measure the diameter of the planet (to scale) then use cardboard, cardboard scissors, hot glue, markers and rubber bands to create the planet.
Students might also use the makerspace materials to build a model of an animal or plant cell for 7th grade. Perhaps they would use a shoe box, glue, pipe cleaners, paper clips, crayons and paper bags to create their model and represent all the components of a cell to demonstrate their learning.
All teachers in the building will be invited to bring their classes to utilize the school-wide makerspace, which will be housed in the Library Media Center. The Makerspace will be used by teachers of all grades and subjects. It will be open during school hours and available for after school clubs to utilize as well.
