2:00 PM

Learn something new,… hone a skill,… challenge your creative problem solving. 

makerspace is a room that contains tools and components, allowing people to enter with an idea and leave with a project. The best part is that makerspaces are communal. The goal is to work together to learn, collaborate, and share.

Call ahead or just drop in to explore materials and ideas.  Come increase your understanding and appreciation of hand work, and creativity as recreation and relaxation.   You can even bring an  activity of your own choosing.  Whatever tools we have will be shared.

Once you come, we know you will be back! 

Early Release Wednesdays are a great time to bring students!  There will be activities for all ages. 

Participating in creative activities has been shown to improve our cognitive skills and create a confident and optimistic attitude.
