"A makerspace is a project intended to teach students how to think for themselves, to problem solve, and to facilitate students' developing curiosity about the world around them. A makerspace's function is to encourage students to see themselves as curators of their own learning.
Involving students in creative collaboration and fostering a sense of ownership creates a bustling, active library at the heart of a school's community of learners.
When the library becomes a space to tinker with inventive ideas
and dabble in new ways of thinking, it becomes not only a place to learn,
but also a place to create."
(Colleen Graves, 2014)
The Spark Studio makerspace is available to every student
at Seckman High School

build, craft, design, tinker, or experiment.
Our collection of makerspace kits and activities include
many STEAM-based projects
