MakerSpace

What is a STEM MakerSpace?

Our MakerSpace is a destination for students to practice the 4 Cs: Creating, Collaborating, Communicating, and Critical Thinking.  MakerSpace projects at Jefferson focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).  The librarian at Jefferson provides STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) hands-on activities throughout the year as part of our student's weekly library curriculum.
