The ACS Makerspace is a creative resource room for teachers and students. For teachers, it is a way to bring abstract concepts to life in 3D form. For students, it is a hands-on opportunity to learn and perfect skills, to tinker with a new design or concept, or simply to construct a desired object from scratch.

How the Makerspace Works

For Teachers and Classrooms

With the help of their classroom teachers and Mr. McMullen, students are able to make items that are related to a concept or question they might be studying. For instance, history students can make a model of the Parthenon and science students may construct a 3D model of our solar system. In this video, our first graders used the Makerspace to build a “buddy bench.” Whatever the project, our students have a place to learn how to plan and design using computer applications, incorporate – and upcycle – different materials, and even how to use woodworking and other tools.

Building a Buddy Bench

For Students

Students in Grades 6 through 12 are invited to use the Makerspace – under the supervision of Mr. McMullen or another adult – during the Makerspace Club held after school each weekday and during lunch and free periods during the school day. All students using the Makerspace must undergo Makerspace Training that orients them with the various tool and materials available as well as their safe use and proper care.
