The STE[A]M Maker Space

The STE[A]M Maker Space is a learning space for creative exploration of STEM. It is a new space and is in active development, with new tools and programming in the works. The goal of the space is to provide a learning environment for students to explore STEM from a variety of vantage points. We want it to appeal to those who are advanced in STEM as well as those who are just curious. It is trans-disciplinary by design, with STEM-specific equipment as well as aspects of an art studio, a wood shop, and a classroom. If you or your group would like to use the space, please let us know.
