What is MAKERSPACE? It is an area in the building that allows for creativity and innovation to occur. Within this MAKERSPACE area, students have the freedom to design, engineer, fabricate, create, build and collaborate. MAKERSPACES provide students with a place to tinker and develop something that may not be possible to create without a space with resources. This will be an area students may use after their typing class (learning.com), during recess time, in an after-school club, or perhaps when working on a classroom project. For the past several months we have been working to develop a space for our students and staff to utilize. We have selected a space within the media center to be the home for our new MAKERSPACE. The Strongsville Education Foundation has awarded a grant to help fund the startup of our MAKERSPACE. Purchases may include equipment for 3D printing, robotics, engineering, coding, circuitry, photography, sewing, and much more. However, there are many items that we will need that you may be looking to re-purpose. Maybe your children have outgrown a few of the items on our list and they can find a new home at Whitney! Inside the main entrance of Whitney Elementary School, we have designated boxes set up for donations for our MAKERSPACE to get off the ground as soon as possible. CLICK THE HEADING to view the materials needed. Thank you for all of your consideration and willingness to help Whitney’s MAKERSPACE not only become a reality, but a huge success.

As a learning community, we believe we have a profound impact on each student’s life and provide a positive role model for students. Our impact is enhanced through the establishment of a positive working partnership with our parents and guardians. We look forward to establishing this positive working relationship with our Whitney community and having a successful school year.
