Build, draw, create, imagine, think!

In the Library we believe in exposing students to a variety of books and stories, as well as hands-on activities and free play.   Sometimes we have S.T.E.A.M.-based challenges, where students work individually or as a team to complete a building activity using certain supplies, whether it's making a skyscraper out of coffee filters and toothpicks, or creating their own "mad-scientist's laboratory" out of Legos.

Each class, after our activity or lesson is done and it's time to check out books, students can choose from a variety of different Maker Space stations:

  • Design  :  This station has paper, coloring books, markers, scissors, pencils, crayons, and rulers.
  • Story Blocks :  Wooden and magnetic building blocks of different shapes, colors, and patterns.
  • Legos :  Assorted traditional Legos and kits.
  • K'Nex :  Gears, pulleys, wheels, and all kinds of bits and pieces to build your own objects.
  • Ozobots :  Tiny robots that will scan and follow any path you draw for them.

We have some incredible creations and fantastically fun times in our Maker Spaces!
