The BMS Makerspace
In January of 2014, Basalt Middle School debuted a new makerspace, where students can learn through hands-on projects via tinkering, building, "making" and exploring technology and STEM topics. Through the programming in this space, they explore everything from how to use hand tools to Lego and Minecraft challenges to experimenting with robotics, 3-D printers, and 21st century technologies like conductive paint. The space is a hub for lunchtime, after school, and evening programming. Click here for our favorite definitions of what a maker space is.
In the spirit of the maker movement, we captured the "making" of the Makerspace below.
