With an aim to promote students’ scientific and technological creativity, The Dewey Schools have made an investment in the Makerspace – a modern space for innovation with an area of 400 square meters.
The room was designed by the same American architecture firm which built the Makerspace in Mount Vernon, our partner school, one of the top 10 most innovative schools in the USA.
🎮 Our Makerspace is composed of such sections as digital engineering, digital production, virtual reality, discussion, and presentation.
🛠 The room is well-furnished with essential creative tools and high-tech machinery, including a 3D printer, a CNC, a laser cutter, and other USA-imported equipment.
🔧 The Makerspace allows Dewey students to practice their learning projects that are related to the ‘Design Thinking’ method, especially in MDE subject (Maker, Design & Engineering), an integrated subject with Mount Vernon School. This functions like a ‘small factory’ that makes all students’ ideas come true by unleashing their creativity and providing them with modern equipment for printing, engineering, and modeling their designs.
💡 As one of the pioneering schools that put Makerspace to work, The Dewey Schools have managed to make students’ learning become more relevant, thus facilitating students’ 21st-century skills development: communication, collaboration, problem-solving, to name a few. Not only students’ scientific-technological passion and innovative spirit are cultivated to master world changes, but students can also make positive impacts on their community with both individual and team products.
