FPPS is part of Town & Country Federal Credit Union’s “Better Neighbor Fund” contest. The organizations that receive the most votes online during the month of October will receive up to $5,000 in funding. We are seeking support to build and outfit a Mobile Makerspace for PPS.
A makerspace is a collaborative setting for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. At its core, a makerspace is about empowering students to take ownership of their learning by giving them opportunities to explore, create, and solve meaningful problems. With ten elementary schools, the ability to outfit ten makerspaces is financially unattainable. A mobile trailer that carries all of the equipment would eliminate the need for any one school to have a makerspace. The proposed PPS Mobile Makerspace is an innovative way to ensure that every Portland elementary student has access to engaging technology, engineering, and design experiences.
Please vote daily at www.tcfcu.com to help bring a Mobile Makerspace to Portland elementary schools and spread the word!
