Open to students in grades 6-8, our new program gives middle school students access to materials and instruction that promote STEAM learning and fun through skill-building and exploration. The Makers’ Corner is a creative, progressive work/play space for students that provides them with a wide variety of construction and design skills to achieve their visions. Student will have access to most materials on all days of the program, for a free-flow, high-choice environment. They will receive training to earn a “license” to use specific tools, and then have access to all tools on which they have been trained.
