Think, Make, Improve
The Makerspace, located next to the CHS Library, provides a center for collaborative, open-ended, play-driven learning opportunities for all ages that include imagination, design, creativity, and problem-solving. These activities support important neuroscience concepts while staying true to the core values of Concord Hill School. Children learn through hands-on activities planned around classroom curricula, literature, and fine motor development. Librarian Nan Stiflel and Director of Educational Technology Karen Opdahl work with students and teachers to plan and carry out special projects. Whether building, tinkering, coding, producing green-screen video effects, or working with wood or robots, the students exemplify the Makerspace motto: “Think, Make, Improve."
