The Stratham Memorial School Makerspace Program provides students in all grade levels a program where they can develop their technological skills and thinking abilities through the use of their curiosity and imagination in creative and developmentally appropriate ways.
We call this a makerspace to emphasize the fact that in order to be creative, one has to make something--a digital or physical product. We are producers, not consumers here.
We learn by building, by helping each other, and by making mistakes. Our design process includes the steps of thinking, making, and improving.
