As we usually do, we had the children vote on what they would like to do learn about this summer in religious education at the Children’s Annual Meeting. The choice was … MakerSpace!
MakerSpace is an idea that is part of the larger makers movement, a movement that seeks to promote tinkering, inventing, creating, and hands-on learning. A makerspace is a place that has the tools, materials, and supplies for hands-on making.
In our interpretation, we will have a classroom set up with: movie making, upcycling/fashion/fiber arts, green energy and snap circuit kits, and art studio supplies. A guest from the congregation will demonstrate and show something that they make each week.
Time for some hands-on faith formation … developing the skills that can shape our world.
