LRC MakerSpace: W E L C O M E
S.T.E.A.M. IT UP :)
“Educators have discovered the power of makerspaces in schools to build students’ competencies and interest in science, technology, the arts, engineering and math. Schools are setting up and using MakerSpaces in school libraries to “support curricular goals and encourage STEAM skills”. ~Diana Rendina/Upstart
Each week during LRC time, students can choose from a variety of Centers. in addition to selecting reading materials, conducting research, enjoying recreational reading, and participating in activities designed to increase skillsets, KG students will now be able to experience an extended MakerSpace area. The Summer of 2016 is bringing some fun enhancements to the LRC designed with KG students.
MakerSpace: S.T.E.A.M.ing it up!
The KG LRC MakerSpace is also home to KGTV productions . . . and the green room! Watch us learn about Chromakey and various video production creation! We are excited to S.T.E.A.M. it up (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) with some creative use of space and materials.

Chromakey - Green Screen Tutorials
I've embedded some green screen tutorials for both KGTV production crew/staff as well as students who will be using MakerSpace this year. Please see Mrs. B if you need any help or have some ideas about video creation you would like to share. Don't forget what Joseph Chilton Pearce said, "To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong." Now get busy creating!
