What is a Makerspace? The Makerspace is an expansion of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). The 2023-24 school year has a full time teacher - Becky Foutch - to lead students thru lesson plans and activities in the Makerspace/STEAM classroom.
The space cultivates creative ways for students to design, experiment, build and invent as they engage in science, engineering, art and tinkering. With a generous donation the Makerspace now has a new 3-D printer! Our school has worked hard to expand STEAM programs knowing they provide opportunities for critical thinking, problem-solving, independence, agency and cooperative learning.
The Makerspace is a free-use space supported by the PTA, community donations, and volunteers.
- The Makerspace Lunch Club is a parent-supervised lunchtime period for upper-grade students to engage in creative independent and collaborative projects. The Lunch Club is a very popular program and is one of the most gratifying volunteer opportunities at Henry Ford.
- After School Makerspace is Henry Ford staff supervised as an afterschool program.
