KMS is proud to showcase our Makerspace and the many ways our students are learning through innovative, curriculum-driven projects and activities.
Through the continued funding from a UNCG Transforming Teaching Through Technology (T4) grant, we are beginning our third year parternering with UNCG to provide "maker" opportunities to our students at all grade-levels.
What is a Makerspace? According to one resource, Makerspace Playbook, it can be described as a place/location where people have the opportunity to create, build, collaborate, imagine, learn, tinker, and innovate using a variety of tools and materials.
We can be "makers" anywhere in the building using no tech or high tech tools. KMS is unique - we have a Makerspace classroom attached to the media center.
Our plan is to work together as staff, administration, and students to integrate the maker principles into our curriculum and daily life here at KMS. We will work closely as Professional Learning Communities to develop meaningful ways to benefit student learning through "making,"
Scheduled after-school MakerClub times will be offered for students to explore personal interests and skills. Please watch for information, or have your student stop by and inquire! This club meets twice a month and all students are welcome.
