Description and purpose of grant: A Makerspace is more than just an educational buzzword- it is a place of creating and learning for students, designed and dedicated to creativity and creation. In a Makerspace, students are able to learn in a hands-on capacity, learning life skills such as sewing, problem solving, and collaboration. This grant would provide the CHS9 Library with the funds necessary to stock the Makerspace with the materials needed to empower students to create. The objective of this grant is to provide a place for students to take a break and have a creative outlet. A Makerspace will help CHS9's students, now and in the future, grow as learners and as people. They will discover new skills, new passions, and new friends in the CHS9 Library Makerspace. 

Implementation process: This program will be implemented in the library. All CHS9 students will have the opportunity to enjoy the Makerspace, before school as well as during Hour Block Lunch. Students will be able to create freely or participate in rotating featured activities, planned by the librarian. Many of the items purchased, such as the craft supplies will be available year round. Other items will be available on a rotating basis. This grant will provide tools and supplies that can be enjoyed by learners for years to come.
