Take your designs to the next level! Here, you'll study design and creation in detail. Have you ever wanted to build those ideas that are in your mind? You can! Bring your imagination, and you can create real solutions to real problems.

What is a Makerspace? It’s a collaborative setting where students learn to explore their imaginations and design their ideas. Picture a science lab, woodshop, computer lab, and art studio all blended together for a hands-on educational experience.

The year will end with a final project where you are in charge! You will be in charge of a budget, research, design, and creation.
