This grant is part of the effort to turn the media center into a MakerSpace, a common movement in school media centers. This movement makes a bridge between a place where content is consumed to where content is created. This grant provides items for the MakerSpace including legos, coding materials and electronic resources.
Beryl Lemmons and team member Tracy Miller of Horton Middle School. They are using this grant for the material so students can have a robotics building competition using the LEGO Mindstorm Kit which allows students to create, assess and adjust machines.
