The MakerSpace Club will meet each Wednesday morning in the Library Collab Lab from 7:20 – 8:20 am. During the MakerSpace Club Mr. Miller and two students from Summit Tech Academy will introduce students to the basics of web design (HTML/CSS), computer science, and robotics. We will use a combination of Khan Academy, free apps, Raspberry Pi, and more of the MakerSpace equipment to make lessons fun and authentic. More information about the MakerSpace and the club can be found on our MakerSpace page. To join the club, simply go to Google Classroom and enter the class code jhspes.

What is it? More like, What isn’t it?
The idea behind the MakerSpace is this, put a bunch of cool stuff in a room and see what people can create. We have both low tech items–Duck Tape, scissors, glue, construction paper– and high tech items–iPads, Flip cameras, MacBook Pro, Little Bits, Spheros, and more. So what can you do? Would you like to produce a song using Garage Band or a movie using iMovie? Would you like to using AutoCad to design something for the 3D printer? Would you like to learn how to build an app or game? Would you like to make your classroom presentation look and sound awesome? The MakerSpace is your place. We will be open every day in the library during school hours. We will also be open from 7:00am – 7:40am every Thursday and Friday beginning October 2 for extended projects.
