We're off and running with the creation of our new instructional Makerspace room. A giant whiteboard is being installed along with a cool area called "Fabrication Station". We'll post pictures once these features are finished.

One of the items that we'd like to incorporate into this space is a LEGO wall. This area will allow students to image, collaborate and build structures. In order to create the wall we are in need of LEGO baseplate tiles. The plates come in a variety of sizes (16x16, 32x32, 48x48) and colors. If you have any of these available at home and can donate a few, we'd sincerely appreciate it. The tiles can be dropped off in our main office between Monday and Thursday, 8:00 to 4:30.

Next week our school is going take the first steps on an exciting new journey. As part of our Owlbot program, we will begin working on our Makerspace instructional area. When students return in August, they will be able to build, explore, collaborate and collect data using a variety of materials. The space will also allow us to expand our robotics and coding activities.

We'll keep the community updated throughout the summer on our progress, and this will include how you can help bring the space to life.
