What is Maker Club?
Maker Club is an after school club where students and or families have an opportunity to create a unique project or explore how to do something that interests them. For the current school year, Maker Club will be primarily open to Middle School students in grades 6-8. However, there are a few classes that will be open to 5th grade students. More information about what is offered when, can be found in the "Documents" section below. Parent/Guardians are welcome to attend classes with their students.

Students can try their hand at 3D Printing, Knitting, Vinyl Cutting, Robotics, Online Programing, Web Design, Sewing and anything else that they can think up!
Maker Club is an after school club that started in the Fall of 2017. Most classes are held right after school until 5 PM with the exception of some specialized evening/weekend classes. Classes usually take place on Mondays or Thursdays. We try and avoid the end of the week and Wednesday's because of Advent and Lenten services.
Maker Club classes run anywhere from one night classes to three week classes (except for robotics which is a 10 week commitment). However, the teacher may extend a class if the students need or want more time. Each class has its own timeline because the projects start at different times. All dates and times are published in the registration materials.
There is a variable fee per class per semester fee for students who wish to participate. Most classes are $5-$10. Robotics would be an example of a $10 course. Some classes like our Introduction to Sewing" are free.
The fees cover materials, software and maintenance.
Software and Program Links
Maker Club makes use of lots of software that is free to use online. While making the projects requires equipment and materials, many projects can be created on a computer for free.
