|Chris Akkerman Maker Stations to date|
It has a been a blast introducing Maker Stations to the Akkerman LC. We have had so much interest from students and that interest just keeps building. We will continue to introduce new maker stations and also focus on moving some of that work/resources into the classroom as it fits the curriculum. So far the lego has been the biggest hit and it will be amazing to see that move into the classroom.
