We took the 4th and 5th grade to makerspace for math and science today. They had to build a ramp with Keva blocks, measure the height and how far the ball rolled. Then they had a discussion about the correlation of the two measurements. They learned about measuring in cm with the cool tape measure that came with the Spheros
A Makerspace is a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. Students can work in groups, alone or with staff on creative projects. These spaces often give students access to tools, technology, and social connections not easily accessible otherwise. The goal of a makerspace is to allow students to learn through direct experimentation and from each other.
