The purpose of the FUNDing Innovation Campaign was to help FUND Innovation with a Webster Groves School District Makerspace Program. A Makerspace is a collaborative workspace for hands on making and learning where students can gather to create, invent, explore and discover by using a variety of tools and materials. A space where teachers actively help students develop critical thinking, self-confidence and STEM skills. As we realized that each school has different needs and spaces, it will be at the discretion of each Principal and Staff how they use the funds from this grant to either create a Makerspace in their school, or expand an existing Makerspace program that already exists.
Along with the funds that arrived during this campaign, there was also a Teacher Tribute recognition program. These teachers are recognized as an inspiration to so many students and families in the WGSD. What a wonderful tribute to all these great teachers!! Click here to read the list.
Thank you to all of those who donated to the FUNDing Innovation Campaign. With your donation, the students in the WGSD will continue to enhance their ability to learn, create and collaborate.
