What is a Makerspace?

What’s a Makerspace?

A makerspace is a creative, DIY space where people can gather to create and invent.

The DHS Library is offering makerspace programming to provide our students with the opportunity to explore new concepts and encourage our students to experiment, create, and collaborate. These projects will help to develop and reinforce Common Core State Standards such as problem solving, critical thinking, communication & collaboration, and technology & engineering skills.

Activities include origami, robotic projects, stop motion animation, spin art, structure building, duct tape creations, knitting, and more!

Students should check their school email and the library's newsletter for information about upcoming makerspace programming.

A big thank you goes out to
Dedham Library Innovation Team (DLIT) for their generous funding of supplies for the DHS & DMS Library makerspace activities.
