Makerspace is a hands-on, creative way to encourage students to collaborate, design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering and tinkering. By funding this grant at Aiken Elementary School, supplies such as LED lights, paints, batteries, Legos, tape and glue will be purchased and added to a dedicated school space where students at all grade levels will be allowed to collaborate and build. Ideas of what to challenge students to create include building river beds and modeling what could happen with land changes or inventing cars that can be moved using magnets only.
