Our sixth graders in Paradise, California enjoy hands-on activities including "Breaker Space" and "Maker Space."
On November 8th, all of that was destroyed by the Camp Fire in Butte County.
Since then, our students have spread out near and far. More than half of the students have checked in and are doing schoolwork through our temporary mall-front classroom. After Christmas break, we will be moving to a less temporary home while Paradise rebuilds. When we get to our new site, we would like to rebuild the hands-on science area that we had.
My project is to replace and upgrade the "Maker Space" and "Breaker Space" that we had. To do this, our list includes a 3D printer, tools, storage and filament. Our list also includes some items that burned in our rooms including computer sound systems, science scales, recycling bins and dustpans. As we move out of our shared mallfront space and into our longer-term temporary solution in January, these items will help our students get back to some sense of normal at school.
