Maker Club

About the Maker Club
    MNW is proud to have a well-stocked makerspace in each of its school libraries. A makerspace is a community center with tools, with the tools available and appropriate for the target audience - in this case, our students. We have everything from glitter to a sewing machine, 3D printer, vinyl cutter, and a fully-stocked recording studio, and most everything in between. The goal of the makerspace is to put tools into students' hands so that all have the opportunity to create, whether for a class, an extracurricular group, or just for fun. Students can use the makerspace during study hall or make an appointment with Mrs. Sturgeon, our librarian, to use it before or after school.  

The question is - what will you make?

The makerspace is a great addition to the school, however, it does not just maintain itself.  The Makerspace Club is the group maintains the makerspace, keeps it up to date, plans maker-related activities, and fundraises for new equipment or supplies.  The Makerspace Club has done some great work in getting the makerspace to where it is now.  Currently, the Makerspace Club is preparing for a student carnival this fall and a student film festival this spring. The group is also planning trips for its members.  The Makerspace Club looks forward to seeing you at these events and many more.

The Makerspace Club loves feedback about the makerspace and their events.  If you have any ideas at all please email them to 18jsiepker@manson-nw.k12.ia.us and/or csturgeon@manson-nw.k12.ia.us
