Library

We are delighted to offer our lending services to public schools throughout the Detroit Metro.  Nearly every item in our inventory comes equipped with learning material for educators, project guides, and/or lesson plans.  We choose resources that are designed for teachers, not engineers.  As easy as plug and play, you should find no trouble integrating them into your curriculum and be well on your way to meeting the new Michigan standards for science education.  We also offer the option of hosting a mobile makerspace workshop using any of our resources (physical or online) right in your own classroom, if you would like an extra set of hands or two on deck.

Our library is currently in the beta phase while we grow our inventory based on real classroom feedback, and fine-tune the lending process.  If you want to learn more about how it works, would like to participate in our beta, want to suggest a resource, or have something to contribute, feel free to send us a message!  We’re all ears 🙂
