The SMArTE (science, math, art, technology, and engineering) Space project helps to support science and technology standards. SMArTE space in the media center provides opportunities for students to use creativity and inventive thinking to build prototypes, explore questions, experience failure and successes, and bounce ideas off each other. The media center acts as a center gathering place for all grade levels giving K-5 students opportunity to explore the design process. Different tasks will be created as a result of collaboration with the classroom teachers to align them with the core curriculum and the curriculum map. The SMArTE space also provides an opportunity to enrich students that have mastered classroom assignments. Projects made by typical Makerspaces utilize common tools and supplies in new ways and uncommon ones to build surprising new things.
