Coming to RES
in the 2016-17 school year
THE RES MAKERSPACE!
A makerspace is an environment that encourages designing, making, building, and creating through hands on exploration. The RES makerspace (located in the existing computer lab space) will be available for classrooms and small groups during the school day as well as endless opportunities for our kids!
Want to learn more about makerspaces? Check out some resources posted on the RES enrichment blog at:
Every makerspace is unique and ours will grow, develop and change as students, staff and community ideas and suggestions come alive through use and exploration.
Love this idea?
WAYS YOU CAN HELP TO GET THE RES MAKERSPACE UP AND RUNNING:
Recyclable/Free Items You Can Collect over the summer:
Paper towel and toilet rolls
Old electronic toys (for a take apart station)
Large Cardboard Boxes
Valuable Making Items You Could Donate:
Material (scraps are fine)
Hot Glue Gun Sticks
$$ If you are interested in investing in the infrastructure of the space with a monetary donation, please contact me and we can find an item that would benefit all!
Hands on Help:
I am looking for space design and construction help. (We would need to meet in mid June). I am looking for people to brainstorm ideas as well as people to make items that would be placed in the space (this would be a great family project for the summer).
