It is fun to see our youngest students design and use their imaginations to build such a variety of interesting items!
Each Kindergarten class had almost an hour to get creative. Some children worked on individual projects, while others collaborated during this makerspace time.
I am the librarian at Spicewood, and this year we're joining the maker movement. Maker spaces come in all shapes and sizes, and are not defined by a specific set of materials or spaces, but rather a mindset of collaboration and creation. Libraries are about learning and access to materials, and maker spaces provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, build, create and tinker as they engage in extended STEAM opportunities. Our makerspace is in the beginning stage this year. Let's see where it goes!
