Middle School Maker-Space

Help me give my students hands-on opportunities to learn about force, motion, and waves. With maker-space style learning, my students will experience concepts using micro:bits, batteries, motors and lights.

My Students

I love my school and my students. My students are bright and curious. They are caring and courageous. They are eager to learn. Teachers are innovative and dedicated.

In our uniqueness lies our strength.

My students are wonderfully diverse. My school is in a large suburban community. The school serves 836 students in grades 6 through 8. The majority of the students (54%) are classified as economically disadvantaged. The student body is culturally diverse.

My students have a variety of interests and abilities.

My Project

Using maker-space style learning is more engaging for students. It's hands-on and creative. Students retain the concepts longer when they experience learning in the maker-space style.

Many of the careers that will be available to my students have not even been conceptualized yet.

Students need STEM activities to prepare for their future world. My students need to understand the mechanics of technology to help them be flexible enough to adapt to a rapidly changing world.

Batteries, bulbs, and motors will help my students build models of more complex technology. Micro:bit is the next level of technology for my students which includes coding and interacting with computer systems.

Your help will potentially impact all the students at my school. All students will have the opportunity to use the materials during Tiger Time, which is a free-choice period in the school day.
