RCDS hosts Makerspace event for local STEAM educators

Partnering with STANYS (Science TeAchers of New York) and Mercy College Center for STEM Education, the RCDS STEAM Committee hosted over 40 educators from schools throughout Westchester and Fairfield counties for a workshop and social event centered on makerspaces and making curriculum.

The event, "Demystifying Makerspaces" featured presentations by Rye Country Day School educators from several departments who shared diverse makerspace projects, samples of student work, and shared best practices in weaving curriculum into the design and engineering-focused Makerspace.

Educators also had the opportunity to participate in a hands on making activity to inspire the "maker" spirit!
