    MakerSpace

    Vision Statement:

    The vision of the Brooker Creek MakerSpace is to support 21st Century learners and empower them to be independent and creative thinkers.

     

    Mission Statement:

    We believe students should have the opportunity to play, create, explore and innovate. The mission of the Brooker Creek Elementary’s MakerSpace is to provide resources and support for our learning community in a safe learning environment.  We believe the students should have the opportunity to create, explore, and play.  We will do this by supporting the classroom curriculum while providing an innovative safe place for students to develop their creativity and independence through a semi structured learning environment.

     

    The goal of Makerspace is to empower students to see themselves as inventors, builders and creators. Makerspace allows learning new skills through trial and error, experiencing failure of an initial idea, the exploration of possible alternatives and then problem solving to improve on the idea.

    All makerspace activities encourage development of 21st Century Learner Skills:

    • Creativity & Innovation
    • Communication
    • Collaboration
    • Problem Solving
    • Critical Thinking
    • Adaptability & Flexibility

     

    The media center's MakerSpace is available daily.  Students can visit the MakerSpace in small groups or with their whole class.
