What is a Makerspace? The Makerspace is an expansion of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). 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.
