A hands-on approach to education

The “maker movement,” a technological and creative thinking and learning revolution underway around the world, has taken hold at Friends School. We offer dedicated spaces in all three academic divisions, where students of all ages can roll up their sleeves and design creative solutions.

Our MakerSpaces are defined by their interchangeability and functionality, rather than a specific discipline: each space is intentionally designed to serve as a wood shop, garage, science lab, and art studio — or all rolled into one.

MakerSpaces allow students to design, create, prototype, and test. MakerSpaces foster a creative response and extension of what takes place in the traditional classroom.

The MakerSpace Program is one of the many ways that Friends School prepares students for the future — by instilling the confidence to challenge, inquire, and take action.
