Our New Space!

In the 2016-2017 school year, thanks to grant funding from the GPD Employees’ Foundation, Highland Drive was able to their very own MAKERSPACE!  Also known as the STEAM Room, students are engaged in a variety of science, technology, engineering, art, and math activities on a weekly basis.  Not only are weekly Makers’ Club meetings held in the space, but classes can also sign out the room throughout the week. Once we emptied the contents of the room, we were able to get started creating our space! Check out our before and after pictures!
