Lower School Computer Science and Tech Integration Specialist Fiona Deeney, Middle School Technology Coordinator Mike Demopoulos and Upper School Innovation Studio Manager Shane Enderle offered an inside look at Latin's maker spaces for parents/guardians.
At the start of the event, the team shared information about each division's maker space and projects created in them. Then they gave a tour of the upper school maker space to show some of the equipment and supplies students can access in all three divisions.
Soldering Irons and accessories
iPad Pro’s with Apple Pencils
3D Printer (x3)
Vinyl Cutter (x2)
MacBook Air (x2)
Digital Embroidery Machine
LittleBits Pro Library and STEAM Kits
Afterward, parents/guardians got the opportunity to laser engrave on a pre-cut wood roman head. They also visited stations to make leather key chains, play with Little Bits electronics from the lower school, see embroidery and sewing machines in action, and a few physical projects that students have created.
The maker spaces at Latin aid students with designing and problem-solving, as well as develop skills, talents, thinking and mental rigor.
