What Can You Make in a Makerspace?Posted by Faith Barbuto
Nine very eager kindergarteners went down to the new makerspace and were almost instantly transformed into capable engineers! First we learned some important safety signals for our new workspace. Two fingers in the air means attention and quiet, an important thing to look out for in what will surely be a noisy space! Then, Mr. Bartels explained to us the difference between tools and materials. Ask your child to explain it to you! The last lesson was on how to build a table, first a quick demo and a reminder to choose all matching legs. The children quickly embraced this new way of learning. The children amazed me and themselves by cooperatively carrying large pieces of wood, screwing their legs on and lifting their newly made tables all by themselves! They were so proud and so focused, I can not wait to see all the creative things that will made in our new makerspace.
