Tanglin Trust School Makerspace

Tanglin Trust School is giving students plenty of space to explore and discover new ideas at age-appropriate makerspaces in its infant and senior libraries. 

The school says, it is offering “opportunities for children to develop crucial STEAM skills through exploring, building, creating, and tinkering.”

The Creative Station in the infant library is filled with Lego, straws, boxes of recycled and craft materials, and activity tables.

The Hive in the Senior Library’s makerspace has arts and crafts for card-making through to quilling, as well as Strawbees construction kits, Little Bits electronics, a green screen, 3D printers, sewing machines, silk screen printing, laser cutters and piles of cardboard boxes. Not only is it widely used by teachers across the curriculum, students can book a consultation with a Maker Coach to learn a new skill, drop in during lunch breaks, and upcycle materials in the student’s Enterprise Club.
