The high school MakerSpace Club is for those students in grades 9-12, who are interested in using technology to create almost anything. Through the Phyllis M. Taylor Fab Lab, the club currently has access to a variety of 3D printers (Cubes, Ultimaker 2s, and a MakerBot), iSense 3D scanners, an Epilogue laser cutter, Vinyl cutters, Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, and MaKey MaKeys.
We currently have several 3D printers available to students, including Ultimaker 2s, Cubes, a MakerBot.
Our Epilogue Laser Helix has a large 24" x 18" tray, perfect for engraving, etching, and cutting a wide variety of material.
We also have multiple vinyl cutters that can be used to create multiple projects, such as cutting stickers and t-shirt design.
Students in the MakerSpace club also have access to Arduinos. An Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on user-friendly hardware and software.
A Raspberry Pi is a small, affordable, computer that plugs into a monitor, and uses a keyboard and mouse. It is a versatile device that enables people of all ages to create a wide variety of projects, while explore programming in languages like Scratch and Python.
A MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for 21st century learners. It allows beginners and experts alike to turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the Internet.
