Maker Space helps kids become problem-finders, engaging in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) learning. Maker education provides practical skills, hands-on and collaborative learning, as well as time for free-range thinking. One Maker Space project hit 54 points on the curriculum between Kindergarten to Grade 7, so there are a host of benefits.
