Our Summer Program Will Be MakerSpace

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.
