     Panthers' Den Makerspace coming this fall 2017!

     

    What's a makerspace?  It's a collaborative work space where students can create, invent, and explore with a variety of materials and gadgets.  The process is open-ended; no finished goal is necessary. Makerspaces incorporate imagination, creativity, engineering, and just plain trying things out!
