Maker spaces are studios and labs designed for students to pursue projects of their choosing that combine design, technology and art. In these labs, students are challenged to develop solutions to real-world problems, and learn skills that bring kids into the world of art and design in unique and engaging ways. We introduce young children to the maker space with demonstrations and hands on activities that include STEAM topics as well as the arts. We will sew, circuit build, craft, and 3D printing, integrating into a curriculum that focuses on making toys. This is a fun and engaging program designed to provide skills and enhance creativity. We teach developmentally appropriate technologies and mix traditional arts techniques. We use hands-on materials and students bring home their work at the end of the session.
