Maker Days 2023

Published On: October 19th, 2023 | Categories: Food for Thought |

Global Maker Day has been a national phenomenon since 2016. It is a day dedicated to learning, sharing, and making. At Powhatan School, we turned one Maker Day into a whole week! Students at all grade levels took part in STEM focused challenges in the Makerspace each day this week. The Innovation & Technology team came up with multiple different challenges to test their creativity and collaboration skills!

The Pumpkin Challenge was a favorite of Lower School students. Each team had to design and build the tallest structure possible that could still hold a small pumpkin aloft. Meanwhile, Upper School students took on the Sports Dome Challenge – having to work together to build a covering for a pretend sports field using various materials that could then be formed only into triangles.

We posted 80 photos on facebook throughout the experience, so check out the photo album below:
