DAYTON, Ind. (WLFI) - Students at Dayton Elementary School will now have the chance to learn more about science through their new maker-space lab.
TSC is partnering with the Indiana Next Generation Manufacturing Competitiveness Center at Purdue University to make the lab.
The lab introduces kids ages kindergarten through fifth grade a look into Science, Technology, engineering, art, and math.
2nd-grade teacher Heather Frauhiger says it will provide children with hands-on learning.
"We will be getting more into the 3D printers and eventually those would be awesome because they get to create something that they can touch," said Frauhiger.
Frauhiger says it will help get children involved more in stem activities.
"Some kiddos have never experienced anything like this and nowadays there are so many jobs that need these kinds of skills, coding and things like that that you're not going to get within the four walls of a regular room," said Frauhiger.
The space features 3D printers, two robotic arms, a green screen and as well as a small robotic ball- which the children are able to control and move around with their tablets.
