2020 Maker Lab Creations

Maker Lab at the elementary was in full swing this past fall with Wendy Fowler-Conner and Nathan Keefe as co-advisors for the club. There were two groups that participated: a cohort for grades 2-3 and one for grades 4-6. Each group consisted of about a dozen students, and both in-person and remote students were able to participate. Each group met via Zoom to create different projects. For all Maker Lab participants, a bag with supplies for each project was sent home for each member to use. Projects were a mix of crafts and gadgets, and students were encouraged to be as creative as they could. Four projects were completed, all with the common theme of using wooden clothespins: a turkey craft, a clothes pin racer, a catapult, and a snowman craft. During meetings, students previewed upcoming projects and shared their completed creations with the group. The Maker Lab advisors are planning a winter session and a spring session as well this year, with the same basic format. Parents will be emailed information about how to sign their child up prior to each session.
