Maker Spaces in the Media Center

Maker Space activities are beginning to show up in the Media Center during lunch periods.  So far we have had a few Lego Challenge activities.  Coming soon will be Cardboard Construction Challenges, Zentangle, Weaving, and Paper Bag Mystery Challenges.

The Tilden Media Center Makerspace is a constructionist place for students to give life, shape, function, and purpose to their ideas; they utilize knowledge, skills, and tools from a wide range of content areas and experiences.

We will be utilizing the TMI - Think, Make, Improve model as we work and create in our makerspace.

Think - Students begin by thinking through the problem, project or challenge that they have been presented.

Make - Students put their thinking into making; depending on what the project is, this is the heart of their work and the practical and exploratory application of their ideas generated during the first stage.

Improve - Students will constantly be analyzing their product or project as they are making and other students might also come up with ways to improve on their original designs.
