STUDENTS GET CREATIVE IN AMPHITHEATER SCHOOL DISTRICT’S MAKER’S SPACES

January 17 22:46 2020

Express yourself! Amphitheater Public School District is happy to help students express themselves through the introduction of Maker Spaces in several of their schools. Maker Spaces are classrooms-turned-creative-outlets. The renovated classrooms include multiple craft materials and supplies for students to bring their imaginations to life through creation. Typically, each student gets to spend at least one day a week in the Maker Space to innovate and create.

Why is it important for kids to get their weekly fix to create in the Maker’s Space?

Maker Spaces are the ultimate STEM space. In Maker Spaces, children use science, technology, engineering and math to invent and innovate. Maker Spaces also provide an outlet for creativity, an important opportunity for children, who are developing emotionally and intellectually. Maker Spaces help children develop problem-solving, creative-thinking, collaboration and communication skills. Assignments tap into all academic areas in a way that brings material to life.

Amphitheater School District plans to have a Maker Space in every school in the next five years. Amphitheater is helping students combine high-level academic content with creativity in a hands-on, minds-on environment. Kids get to express themselves and experiment with problem-solving in new ways. It is essential to give children time to explore and create without limits. Students at Amphitheater Public Schools have the opportunity to grow emotionally and developmentally through creative activities with Maker Spaces, which allow students to get hands-on experience with exploring and discovering.
