CR Maryland & The Maker Space Project

CR Maryland Baltimore Community Maker Space Project

CR Maryland Community Baltimore Makers Space STEM Classroom

In 2018, our residents in the Weyburn Park neighborhood of Baltimore City introduced us to an opportunity to work with the McCormack Elementary School to help build a STEM-oriented classroom called the Maker Space. The project needed materials and volunteers to get it set up. CR of Maryland went to the school on a Monday morning to deliver all the supplies and help the school build furniture and set up the new space. If you’re looking to setup an elementary STEM classroom, here are the supplies we used to get started.
