The Shorecrest Preparatory School expanded its media center in 2014 to include a makerspace to encourage hands-on learning. Capitalizing on the national maker movement, the curriculum is adapting to focus on the STEAM skills of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. This special learning environment encourages independent thinking, creativity and problem solving.
The makerspace includes a 3D printer, building and technology materials, computers, books and much more. We were pleased to work with Bay News 9’s Ashley Jeffery to tell their story.
