Our school has over 900 4-7 year old students who live in a city just outside of Boston. 66% of the students in our school live at or below the Federal poverty level. 82% of our students speak a language other than English at home.
For most of our students this is their first time in school and we want their first school experiences to instill a lifelong love of learning.
They come to school each day curious and ready to try new things. Our students love activities that are active, hands-on, engaging and allow them to explore their creativity.
Kids love to build with LEGO, and we wanted to give them an opportunity to use what they love and learn at the same time! Our Makerspace will allow our students to explore STEM concepts in a developmentally appropriate manner. STEM Education is an educational approach which focuses on one or more of the four disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math.
It is our hope that the Makerspace will be a place where our students can come together to experiment, create and learn.
We aim to help our students be curious and creative in a safe, engaging and accessible space.
