We like to say that MakerClub teaches your student to fail. What we mean by that is that we strongly believe that we learn best through failure and iteration. At our meetups we celebrate discovery and taking chances with your ideas. When we have ideas and are allowed to try them without negative consequences we are able to quickly come to a result we can iterate on and make better. If we have enough time to try all of our ideas we can end up with a working version!
STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEAM adds an "A" and that stands for "Art". STEM/STEAM Education is the focus of the MakerClub and we accomplish this through experiential learning by getting hands and building projects.
The project list is always changing based on current trends and student interests however, we generally cover the following categories: computer programming, robotics, leatherwork, woodworking, epoxy art, and more!
