The Makerspace at ICS is a place where students explore their own interests, utilize a variety of tools and materials, and develop authentic projects.  Learning in the Makerspace offers students an opportunity to collaborate, communicate, think critically and express themselves in a creative way.  A Makerspace is about turning knowledge and skills into action!

The Makerspace encourages a growth mindset, continuous learning, and independent thinking.  It is about teaching and learning that is focused on student-centered inquiry.  This is not the project done at the end of a unit of learning, but the actual process and purpose of the learning.  At ICS, our Makerspace provides an authentic connection between grade-level content, the Our Ways Teaching and Learning Framework™, library/media, inquiry-based learning and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math).
