LMS Makerspace Project

About

Makerspaces provide hands-on, creative ways for students to design, experiment and invent as they engage in science, engineering & tinkering. Makerspaces are not limited to any one specific content area and can be used for teachers and students to explore common personal interests.

At Lanier, we are currently in the design stages of creating our very own Makerspace, which will be housed in the Scott. Poole Lecture Hall (Room 153). Click on the YouTube video below to check out a computer animation of what students and staff are envisioning our innovative space will soon look like. 

What is the Makerspace Movement?

The Maker Movement is a vehicle that will allow schools to be part of the necessary return to constructivist education. A movement that will allow students to be creative, innovative, independent, and technologically literate; not an “alternative” way to learn, but what modern learning should really look like (Stager, 2014).

How can you help support this Makerspace movement at Lanier Middle School?

We are looking for members of the Lanier community to consider donating items which are typically considered trash or junk. Think of the saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. In this case, that so called “trash” could very well be the materials needed for a great innovation project. All donations are greatly appreciated!
