In 2015 Dallas Brooks Community Primary School opened an educational “Makers” room. The educational focus within the room is student voice, inquiry learning and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
While working in the room students explored some of the following –
- Little Bits
- Makey Makey
- Turtle Art
- Squishy Circuits
- Soft Circuits.
Students were then required to use their new skills and make or invent something of their choice.
Some of our students also had the opportunity to plan and deliver a “Makers” event that consisted of student led workshops. A student committee was formed and planned all aspects of this event.
