Makerspace Mentors

The World Needs Inventors Who Will Ask The Question “Why Not?”

Maker Spaces are building on three guiding beliefs

1. Ever child is a maker (and every teacher is naturally creative)

2. Every student should have access to creative projects

3. Every subject can use a Maker Space

 

These kids are our classroom tech support team!

These are kids who have volunteered their after school time on Wednesdays to familiarize themselves with Makerspace materials. With their own classroom teacher permission, they come to classrooms or the Makerspace as a mentor to help when teachers are implementing engineering standards, using tech, or just need an extra set of hands in the Makerspace. Makerspace Mentors will help  trouble shoot things that may go wrong, they have been practicing how to problem solve and be leaders.
