2017 - 2018 Grades 6-9 Novel Nominees
Maker Space Mondays
Maker Space Mondays are planned this year during lunches a few Mondays per month. We will have a variety of STEM and arts and crafts activities, all fun!
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.
