We continue to add new technology to our STREAM/MakerSpace program and this year have added a new 3D printer, several new robots and drones, and several new Digital Display Boards and several new Digital Interactive Boards for the classrooms.
We are also starting a school garden project funded by a grant from VOYA Financial. We will be working on some indoor and outdoor garden activities for students in Prek through 4th grade this year with the hope of expanding the project to fifth through eighth grade next year. This is an exciting opportunity for our school to expand our STREAM education program.
Due to the addition of the school garden grant this year, the usual Maker Space activities will not be taking places in the same way. Students will be assigned specific group projects to work on rather than having an open project design activity this year. The time devoted to the school garden project doesn't allow for the students particularly in Middle School to spend the time needed for individual projects this year.
