CR of Maryland is proud to be sponsoring a “MakerSpace” in a Baltimore school in one of the neighborhoods where we have a lot of tenants. Our team is rebuilding the MakerSpace and furnishing it with needed equipment and technology. The “maker movement,” is a technological and creative thinking and learning revolution underway around the world. The space at Friends School in Baltimore offers dedicated spaces in all three academic divisions, where students of all ages can roll up their sleeves and design creative solutions. MakerSpaces are defined by their interchangeability and functionality, rather than a specific discipline: each space is intentionally designed to serve as a wood shop, garage, science lab, and art studio — or all rolled into one. MakerSpaces allow students to design, create, prototype, and test. MakerSpaces foster a creative response and extension of what takes place in the traditional classroom. The MakerSpace Program is one of the many ways to prepare students for the future — by instilling the confidence to challenge, inquire, and take action.
