The Learning Space has always had the vision of recreating the "tutoring center." Our belief has always been that education is not binary. We need to approach learning from the whole-child perspective and teach children to love the learning process. Nothing allows a child to explore the learning process better than a maker space. What is a maker space you ask? If you don't know, it is a magical place for kids (and adults) to create! Research proves that higher level thinking is best achieved when one is actively engaged in creating. In a maker space, kids are exposed to all facets of STEAM education (Science, technology, engineering, art and math). The student may be presented with a question or a problem, and then given the tools to envision and build a solution.
Maker Space @ The Learning Space, will be previewing its program at the Lafayette Art ad Wine Festival in September 2019.
