Campus Laboratory School's Third Annual

Maker Challenge

a ReMake Learning Days event.

Campus Laboratory School students created a "maker" project based on the 2019 theme of "Protect Our Species" using simple, earth friendly materials. On Friday, May 10th those projects were shared with friends and family across our school community. 
Pre-School & 3A
Preschoolers worked with their 3rd Grade friends during the event. Here is an octopus made from paper plates and bubble wrap!

Pre-K worked with 3B to make roller coasters out of Styrofoam, pipe cleaners, and beads.

The 4th grade joined Montessori to celebrate the Maker Challenge. First, students shared their Maker Challenge projects. We explored birdhouses, played an endangered animal game, discussed the importance of pollinators and how to attract them, and were reminded of the importance of keeping plastic and litter out of the natural environment. 

Then the 4th grade students partnered with  Montessori children to create even more projects using our Mobile Maker Space materials.

Inventive and articulate students who wanted to share more about their project’s concept and design headed to the “red carpet” room. There, they explained details of their designs from a set designed by art teacher, Leigh Roche.
