Is anyone as curious as I am about Makerspace? During every holiday season makerspace does custom items for  the EHHS community. But how does the class come up with all their amazing work? How does makerspace work as a team to provide items that’ll satisfy all people in the EHHS community? Ms. Lutar, and Mrs. Robinson give us the inside scoop.

Make(Your)Space

Makerspace is an elective class that allows students to express themselves creatively while learning the ins and outs to running a business. Students are left with a budget, and have to navigate producing goods while managing a stable workplace. Makerspace students have lots of equipment such as presses, vinyl, and crickets – that help them cut paper, leather, and metal. Makerspace incorporates not only artistic, accounting, finance, and technical skills. 

“The difference between [makerspace and other classes] is that its business from beginning to end.”

— Mrs. Robinson

If you’re curious to learn more about makerspace and all its awesomeness, check out our previous article written by Nicole Brown!

Makers-Team 

Patricia Robinson and Haley Lutar make an iconic EHHS duo. Ms. Lutar takes on more of the creative and technical side of Makerspace. She’s the one who brings the ideas to life! On the flip side, Mrs. Robinson is the keeper of the business side of Makerspace. Both teachers learn a lot about each other working together.

“Ms. Lutar and I melded really well, she’s super on top of all the equipment in the Makerspace… I couldn’t have asked for a better partner.” 

— Mrs. Robinson

The two work together combining their skill sets to create a positive work environment. 

Planning/Processing/Producing 

The ideas and projects created by the makerspace are completely student based. The makerspace classes sit down and come up with products they think that their community would be interested in buying, then decide whether or not they have the budget to support it [the project]. Working in the makerspace has taught students how to manage successful projects as well as projects that don’t sell as well. 

What do they do if a product doesn’t sell? How does it affect their budget? Can they make a project that’ll save the money they may have lost?

All of these are important discussions between the teachers and students when communicating possible new ideas. Makerspace teaches students how to effectively problem solve and work together as a team and make sure their products are staying trendy as time goes on. 

Cute and Crafty

Makerspace has a lot going on with the new group of students planning and finalizing their projects for Semester Two. Look out for all the upcoming holidays and school-wide events coming up! You wouldn’t want to miss a makerspace opportunity.
