HEF has seen great success with our grants for Makerspaces at North Junior High school, and it’s time to take the excitement to the elementary level. Two Mobile Makerspace carts at Gatewood have the potential to reach every student as they provide both high-tech and low-tech experiences ranging from robotics and coding to sewing, cardboard challenges, and recycled projects. Students will experience the scientific method by becoming immersed in evidence-based exploration, trial and error, persistence through failure, open communication and skepticism. The ideas and materials provided in Mobile Makerspaces complement and enhance Hopkins’ Engineering in Elementary science curriculum.
