Innovation Station

The West School CLC is proud to announce our newest learning space, The Innovation Station. This space is designed to foster collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication - as our students tinker with everyday items to solve challenges. Students will be introduced to the engineering design process that involves asking questions, imagining possible solutions, planning, creating and improving on a their plan. The maker movement is all about teaching our children to think for themselves, to think creatively, and to look for do-it-yourself solutions. We would love your help in gathering items for the Innovation Station.

Adhesive Material: duct tape, glue (sticks or bottles), low temp glue gun and glue sticks, masking tape
