How can a school prepare its students for tomorrow’s world? Old High Middle School is seeking to develop perseverant problem solvers, innovators, and critical thinkers. A powerful way to encourage this development is through a Makerspace. It’s a place where students can question, explore, collaborate, design, tinker, and test  solutions for each subject area. The climate of makers at OHMS is already alive  with a few shared tools and recycled supplies. With a dedicated place  for our Makerspace,  students' individual interests and skill sets will flourish.

3D Printers                                                      Hand Tools

Cardboard Scroll Saw                                Pancake printer
Robotic Equipment                                     Sewing Center
Circuitry Supplies                                        Tables
Shelves and Storage Bins                         Gen. Suppliles

Help us advance student learning and provide training for our staff from the Amazeum professionals. This joint effort with the Scott Family Amazeum and the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is a fabulous opportunity to expand maker education across the nation. Matching funds of up to $800 from Google are already guaranteed.
