The Thorp Makerspace

At Thorp we believe that every one of our students is creative, inventive, and imaginative. We believe that everyone can create the future and change the world. So we are starting an after-school Makerspace devoted to exploring the creativity and imagination of our budding designers, creators and engineers. Our Makerspace (Sponsored by Mrs. Ruszel and Mrs. Romei for students in grades 5-8) will give students access creative projects using our 3D printing, Makey Makeys, Spheros, and computer programming.  We believe that our students should see the whole world as a construction kit that they will help make. More information about all of our after-school programs will be found right on this page!


The following technologies are all part of the Thorp Maker Space:

Scratch Lessons (Visual Object Oriented Programming)
Multiple Grade Level Lesson Plans


Makey Makey Lessons



Sphero Lessons
