The Pratt Family Farm Foundation Maker Space is a dedicated space in Justice Page Middle School for students to create hands-on solutions to problems not just in STEAM content, but throughout their various classes. In the Maker Space, students and staff share equipment, knowledge, and ideas via hands-on/minds-on projects and activities that foster creativity, resilience, problem-solving, teamwork, project management, and much more. Students have access to hand tools, power tools, 3D printers, Makey Makeys, Arduino UNO and Lilypads, sewing machines, electronic components, soldering equipment, multi-meters, lumber and wood working materials, craft supplies, LEGO, recycled materials and more to brings their ideas to life.
As part of JMPS STEAM Integration, all students in 6th and 8th grades will have multiple opportunities via Advisory to work together in the Pratt Family Farm Foundation Maker Space. For these lessons, each 8th grade Advisory is paired with another 8th grade Advisory Fall Semester, and each 6th grade Advisory will be paired up with an 8th grade Advisory Spring Semester.
