STEM/STEAM Makerspace Startup!
Event Chair: Becky Foutch
help henry ford get our dedicated makerspace up and running!
Many families along with our teachers & principal have shown much enthusiasm for this endeavor! Not only will a Makerspace be a wonderful opportunity for current students, it's addition will be an innovative and sought-after asset for incoming families as they consider their school options..
To create an open-ended, creative, student-driven STEM/STEAM learning, we are looking for some basic low tech materials. You can see how SIMPLE our materials needs are so get creative! This might be a good time to raid the garage, thrift stores and office supply closets at work -- or even ask your employer to donate! Amazon has the best prices for most items listed.
We are also listing volunteer opportunities for Setup Help and Supervising the Drop-in Lunch Club (3-5 grades) and some not-so-basic WISH LIST items as we dream big for this space!
With your continued support, Henry Ford's Makerspace will open after Winter Break! Please contact Becky Foutch with any questions about the list, our Makerspace goals or ideas for expanding STEAM at Henry Ford. Thanks for your support!

Network with other parents by working and having fun alongside them. You just might meet your new best friend, a carpool partner, or the lead on a new job. Join us!
