MakerSpace Wall Debuts at CE&MS Library

First published on 13 June 2017 Posted in Library

Picture of MakerSpace Wall at Chilton ES & MS LibraryMrs. Salzsieder, Chilton Elementary & Middle School Library Media Specialist, had a dream to bring a MakerSpace to the school where students could imagine, create, and design. She researched what other makerspaces in schools looked like. She scavenged rummage sales and thrift stores for puzzles, learning games, and building materials which students used when they were done checking out their library books. She had Monthly Make Days for her elementary classes. She added maker activities to monthly Family Reading & Technology Nights where families had the opportunity to make slime, create catapults, design and fly paper airplanes, create sand art, and more. Then she thought about adding a LEGO® wall, Magnetic Poetry, and LiteBrite board to the east wall of the library and sought funding and a construction team.

Funding for the building materials and supplies was provided by a teacher resource grant through the ArtsCore Grant. The ArtsCore Grant seeks to support teachers in their efforts to teach in and through the arts by developing and implementing programming designed to enhance their competence and confidence to do so. Materials were purchased over spring break. Construction was managed by William Sonntag, CHS Junior, for his Eagle Scout project. William’s family and fellow Boy Scouts measured, cut, painted frames and plywood, and drilled more holes into pegboard over the next several weekends. District maintenance staff mounted frames and plywood to the east wall and bookcases.

The gluing of LEGO® baseplates and final installation took place over Memorial weekend.

Mrs. Salzsieder and Mrs. Bartel, Technology Coach, will have the opportunity this summer to attend the WiFab Retreat at UW-Stout to bring back more ideas to incorporate making into the curriculum.  Students will have ample opportunity to imagine, create, and design to their hearts content next fall.
