Makerspaces, sometimes also referred to as hackspaces, hackerspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where students can gather to create, invent and learn. As a teacher, I am responsible for preparing my students for the 21st century and there is no better way to do that by creating a makerspace in our classroom. We will do this through Maker Maven who curates amazing supplies that makes building a makerspace a one-stop shop.

Maker Maven makerspace kits are designed for students to "Unbox & Start Making" and encourage basic STREAM concepts through hands-on makerspace activities. Each makerspace kit contains several makerspace activities complete with activity instructions, materials, and task cards containing focus question(s) and extension activities.

If this is the type of classroom you wish you could have been a part of when you were a student, please consider making an investment in our fundraiser. Every generous investment brings these awesome resources one step closer to our classroom.

Here is the breakdown in cost for fundraising for Maker Maven

  • Innovator Kit (x1) - $299.00
  • Preferred Partner Program - $36.50
  • PledgeCents Platform Fee - $18.25
  • Payment Processing Fee - $10.95
  • Total - $365.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar)

If we do not meet our goal...

I will purchase as many kits from the Maker Maven store that I can to help my students receive better experiences.

At this school your child will be academically challenged, accepted and loved, and shown how to exhibit strong character and cultural values. Our three core values are Rigor, Respect and Responsibility. We expect our students to work hard in order to accomplish their goals, to treat others with kindness and to own what they do. All of our beliefs and values are accomplished with consistent communication, early notification if an issue arises, and always keeping an open-door policy.
