The Makerspace is an exciting, busy, and innovative resource shared by the whole school. Part "hands-on workshop" and part "high tech lab," all students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 are invited to explore their creative design ideas and ultimately produce solutions to real-world problems. Students are able to develop both Digital and Materials solutions.
The Makerspace equipment and tools can be used to safely explore the properties of a range of materials, like wood, plastics, and metal, and understand how to shape and join them using a variety of tools and equipment. They also gain hands-on experience using new technology such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and Robotics equipment, which helps students understand the technological world they live in.
The aim of the Makerspace is to create a practical, inspirational, and challenging environment and culture that supports all areas of the IB curriculum and encourages the students to become innovative, problem-solving, and creative risk takers.
