My Students

Students need more opportunities to create, explore, and tinker. The library is the perfect setting for learning and making to take help us continue to build our makerspace!

At a time when so much emphasis is placed on the weight of standardized testing, my students need more opportunities to learn, create, and discover their passion without the worry of a score or grade.

The 1000 students in sixth to eighth grade at our school would thrive in a space designed for them to build, tinker, and create. They need an environment where it is okay to try new things and fail, because the best learning happens in a setting where failure is okay and just another opportunity to try again.

My Project

These resources will help to build the crafting element of our library's makerspace. This project will provide the supplies for students to create a variety of craft projects. This will be a unique chance for students to express their creativity through making. With these resources, I'm planning to open the library during lunch to students on selected days with the purpose of having students use these supplies to create their own projects.

This project will give students an outlet to express their creativity and learn through making.

Students will have opportunities to discover new crafts and hobbies that they will enjoy.
