STEAM Maker Space!

May 25, 2017

GCEF donors: Thanks to your support, GUFS was able to purchase equipment and introduce a Maker Space at the Garrison School!


This winter, GUFS Art Teacher Coulter Young implemented a six-week STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Design and Mathematics) unit into his curriculum for grades K-8 with the purchase of Little Bits Workshops Sets, Goldie Blox, Quibits, and Legos. Maker Spaces provide the foundation of a STEAM curriculum by presenting students with hands-on, creative ways to design, experiment, build and invent and will continue to be used at GUFS for many years.


Special thanks to the Tormey family for their matching grant of $2,400 to make this Maker Space possible at GUFS.


Check out these incredible robots in action that GUFS students created!
