Our Makerspace is Open!
Ervin's Makerspace is located in our Library Media Center. It is a beautiful and fun space filled with tables, stools that wobble, green tractor seats, photographs on the walls, 3-D printers, robots, materials to create just about anything someone could imagine, and so much more. Look further in the section titled 'Ervin Makerspace Resources' to find out what our student and staff are learning and utilizing.
Every class gets to come into the actual Makerspace and learn about a new Makerspace resource with Ms. Stratton once every 4 weeks. The other 3 weeks the classrooms teachers check out the resources to be used for lessons in class and in centers or they can choose to bring their whole class to the Makerspace to work and learn.
