Mrs. Wojciechowski, EC teacher, applied and was chosen for the LIFT grant through the Union County Education Foundation. She requested materials to develop a Phoenix Makerspace for her classroom, which she plans on introducing to more students at South Providence by Spring 2018. A makerspace is an educational opportunity to prepare 21st century learners for college and careers. It is supplied with various tools and materials for students to utilize during a hands on learning activity; such as, electrical building kits . Students come to the space to conceptualize, create, and collaborate with peers on innovative projects.
Congratulations Mrs. Wojciechowski! We look forward to seeing the great things you have planned for your classroom!
