Makerspace

What is our Makerspace?

Our Makerspace is a place where people come together to learn with each other, explore materials and ideas, tinker around, invent and support each other through a growth mindset.

  • After school on Thursdays
  • 2:45-4:30 p.m.
  • MUST pre-register to attend
  • Request to check out the Makerspace by emailing Checkout@district196.org.

Our Makerspace is made possible by the District 196 STEM Initiative in coordination with Dr. Cathy Kindem and a grant written by Valley educator Michelle Carruthers.
