A makerspace is a collaborative workplace on a school campus, and I would love to create one on my K-8 campus. Highland lakes is a unique public school in that it is a true K-8 school with a true elementary school and a true middle school. Additionally, we have a program for highly gifted students that operates as a separate arm of the school. And finally, we have an amazing music program for our students- full band, choir and orchestra. What we do not have, however, is a space on our campus that can provide students the opportunity to flex their creative muscles in a hands-on way. A makerspace on a school campus such as ours would  provide this experience, and enhance the collaborative and innovative projects that are a cornerstone of our gifted programs. Instead of just focusing on the typical Science, Tech, Engineering and Math that are most common with makerspaces, our school’s would incorporate an artistic component for students to explore and extend current passions and also be introduced to new artistic processes. Our students have the talent and desire, but they often don’t have access to the materials that can drive those ambitions. I want to change that on our campus.

District: Buckeye ESD

Address: 25400 W. Maricopa Rd, Buckeye AZ 85326

We have a campus garden that is in need to some TLC.  We started the campus garden for STEM and the Garden Club maintained the garden.  We have not had a Garden club this year.  The garden has been neglected and is seriously overgrown.  We would love to clean up the area and possible start a new club or open the garden up for STEM activities in the Spring.

We would love to add benches, metal arches for trailing plants and have $$ to purchase plants, soil, gardening equipment.

Thank you for your consideration.
