What is Maker Club?

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 of our evening 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 $5 per class per semester fee for students who wish to participate. There are some exceptions like Robotics and the Sewing Introduction classes. Robotics costs $10 because is spans both semesters and the Introduction to Sewing is free.
This fee covers materials, software and maintenance. This fee applies to all classes. Typically, students would participate in only one Maker Club class per semester with the exception of sewing.
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.
