Help us give MMS students access to the newest tech tools for their school-work!
In partnership with the HSA, Dara Gronau, Evyn Degnan (the MMS Media Lab Leader) and several MMS parents, “The MMS MakerSpace Project” is a multi-year effort to give our students the opportunity to explore their curiosities and present their passion with modern technology tools. Starting in 2018 and continuing for the 2019/2020 school year, we’ve repurposed the old computer lab adjacent to the MMS Media Center and have created a modern maker space. The project today includes state-of-the art video cameras, a new large presentation screen, computers with video/audio editing tools and other creative-suite programs, larger 3-D printers and large-scale printers, architecture/robotics kits, augmented reality tools, and more allowing MMS students a hands-on experience with the tech tools of today and tomorrow.
We’ve worked closely with MMS faculty to integrate the use of The MMS MakerSpace into their curriculums, and are happy to see the use of the lab for science, language arts, civics, and more. We are continuing to expand the use of the lab into more classes and projects.
The MMS MakerSpace needs support from MMS parents to continue to supply the lab and bring new and exciting tools. Click the yellow DONATE button below to give via PayPal (make sure to note your donation is for The MMS MakerSpace). Otherwise, please write a check, payable to: the MMS HSA with a note “For MMS MakerSpace” and have your child deliver to his/her homeroom teacher.
We’ll update you on our progress and will share pictures from the lab regularly.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
