Makerspace A Happenin' Place at Budd!

Students at Budd School enjoy their time spent in the library's new Makerspace.  District Library/Media Specialist Mrs. Julie Seboe serves as the supervisor of this learning lab which was funded by a grant from the Hugo and Mable Young Foundation.

"Makerspace is a place where students gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials," said Mrs. Seboe. "The students use tools such as K'nex, Legos, Littlebits, Robots, duct tape and laptops. When working with robots, the students create a code in an iPad app in order to have the robots complete tasks around the library," she explained.
