At Forest School, students have access to Maker Space where they build and refine 21st Century Skills including creating, collaborating, and critical thinking. Maker Space activities include designing, coding, and building; it features complex thinking and problem-solving, while being highly engaging, hands-on, and open-ended. Maker Space led to one student declaring, "I'm the coder in our family".
