The Orchard School Library has a fabulous makerspace! This is a collaborative learning space for students to think, create, share and grow. "Science is about wonder and risk and imagination, not checklists or vocabulary memorization." - Gary Stager and Sylvia Martinez. Our library makerspace is a place for students to dream, to wonder, to take risks and to exercise their creativity. With the right tools, the possibilities are limitless.
