CRHSAP Makerspace

The Hatchery -- "Where great ideas are born!"

What is a Makerspace?  

 A Makerspace is a community-operated workspace that can fuel creativity by encouraging people of all ages to make and create. They often function as centers for peer learning and knowledge sharing, as well as a social opportunity that promotes design process and STEM skills. The Home School Hatchery is one such Makerspace, designed for use by CRHSAP students in grades K-12, in collaboration with their parent and teacher mentors.


The CRHSAP Makerspace --  "The Hatchery"

The Home School Hatchery helps students grow from consumers into creators. As part of the Makerspace movement, The Hatchery allows students to build and revise, fail and retry, bounce ideas off one another, and make something. By integrating design thinking and playfulness, we hope to nurture students into a maker mindset, and ultimately “hatch” students who are full of ideas…and the ability to develop them.  

Explore ideas, create something new, and share it with others: join us!
