Makerspace Programs

Makerspace Programs allow students to investigate science concepts in a whole new way.  These programs utilize equipment and materials that are not found in a typical classroom and provide experiences that students will be talking about for months to come! Join us in The Hive Makerspace for STEAM-based, enrichment programs that challenge students to use open-ended and critical thinking skills.
