This has been an exciting addition because children can create their ideas in many ways and with many tools. Our Reggio-Inspired philosophy promotes children using real materials to recreate ideas and expand upon them.
STEAM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) are developed in a Maker Station. Children have daily opportunities to use these skills. They love the responsibility of using "real" tools.
A wind tunnel gives children opportunities to experiment with what will fly and what modifications increase flight.
Sewing machine helps children create things like pillows, banners, and stuffed animals.
3-D Printer is coming soon for the Station!
