Makerspace

So we have a brand new Makerspace at Barron Park Elementary in PAUSD. The formal innauguration is on Saturday, September 6th from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. with two keynote speakers:

Rushton Hurley , inspiring speaker, educator, founder of Nextvista at 10:45 a.m. and

Dr. Max McGee, Superintendent of PAUSD at 11:00 a.m. 

The first day of school was not really setup. However, the students saw the open doors and asked to come in since they are so used to coming in at lunch for the programming club. Following are just a few pictures of the students tinkering around, getting a tour of the new space, being super enthusiastic.
