A “maker space” is a place in which people who share interests gather to collaborate and work on projects while sharing both equipment and ideas. They are often found inside of schools or libraries.

Here at Central, we have one near the high school art room. This space allows students to grow and learn all while developing their critical thinking skills. It also will aid in boosting their creativity and furthermore, should help students become more self-confident in their abilities.

Mrs. Stringer’s 9th-grade biology students made great use out of the maker space during their introduction to the unit on cells. They were creating plant and animal cells out of clay and other materials. In the process, they learned  about the organelles, structures, and functions of the cells.
