Women's History Month
This year’s theme, Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business, honors women who have successfully challenged the role of women in both business and the paid labor force.
In the Media Center we have narrowed our focus onto women who have carved careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathmatics fields. Join us as we honor and celebrate these amazing, ground-breaking women.

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 thje 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.
