This year I was honored to have our first three Maker Mentors in the Lab. I was so grateful for these professionals sharing their crafts with students. It made all the difference for those kids and the success of their projects to have one-on-one time with someone who knows what they are doing. As one student said "I learn better from people than tutorials." Elliot Anderson, Jennifer Carr and Steve Fink all donated time to teach our local SWMS students. Thank from everyone at Seward Middle School.
wHAT IS A MAKER LAB?
Our Maker Lab is a place where kids can come to create, innovate, tinker, and explore a variety of materials and technologies. During class students will be exposed to engineering and design, computer science, electronics, and a variety of trade skills. The course is based on student interests, goals and creativity, not a set curriculum.
