This is the page where you'll find the most current info about the MakerKIds program. Even though it's still 2013 and the program hasn't begun, we're already at hard at work building out our Makerspace which is located in one of the garage bays in the Transportation Garage Building across the parking lot from the main school building. We're loading in, installing equipment, hand tools and workbenches, bringing in supplies and setting up to start making. Our first sessions will begin on Wednesday, January 22nd. There will be meetings at school the first week you're back from Christmas vacation where you can learn more about the program and see if it's something that you might like to. We hope so. (If you haven't already, you should look at the "Kids" section of the website for info about our plans, the schedule and so on.)
If you join the program, this blog will be our main way of keeping in touch with you when we're not together in our Makerspace. The blog will be used for announcements that you, your parents and caregivers can use to keep up with MakerKids activities. There will be news and information about special events – for example, if we're planning a field trip or we've invited a maker from our community to visit our shop, or, say, that a new piece of equipmant has arrived.
This is a good place for you to talk to us, ask questions and share ideas. So visit this page often and participate in the dialogue about making!
