Between 2017 and 2020, Michigan science standards for K-12 students are changing to meet next-gen standards.Let's make sure that our students have everything that they need to rise to the challenge. We are building a community of curious minds and critical thinkers, and emphasize learning by exploration, trial-and-error, and thinking outside of the box. We can provide enough workshop equipment for each student, making it a hands-on learning experience for everyone. The concept of a mobile makerspace is just that - it can go wherever there's a road. Thumble's goal is to make fun STEM learning opportunities beyond accessible, and without limitation. We want to be where the students are - classrooms, libraries, community centers, homeschool co-ops, scout troupe meetings, wherever! We also want to be here when you need us - we get together at least once a month for a STEM centered "play-date" (STEM Club). We can advance informal learning by using resources that have been designed especially for children, and have a blast while doing it. We're trying something different. It's a community. It's open source. It's constantly evolving. It's a lot of fun. The makerspace is flexible. If you just need to use our resources, that's cool. Need to learn how to use something that you want to use in your home or class? We can train you. Need an idea for a workshop? We have plenty. Want to host a workshop? We'll see you there. Are you trying to find a workshop or event to attend? Let's create one.
Let's make something awesome.
