Maker Space

This year Northside School will join Georgetown School in offering an afterschool Makerspace program.  Makerspaces and the Maker movement of late have come forth to bolster hands-on and experiential learning.  An ally of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) education, "making" seeks to simply invite the natural intrigue and curiosity of young creative minds and foster experiences that fuel innovation, collaborative drive and the critical thinking necessary in our quickly changing culture.  We will be offering students a variety of creative and meaningful choices:  Marble Machine, Vinyl Design and Cutting, Woodworking, Basic Circuitry and Take Apart Station.  This is an exciting opportunity for our students. Look for more details in the coming months!
