Riverwood International Charter School is excited to announce the roll-out of phase 2 of their student MakerSpace. “Raider MakerSpace” will be housed in the new Media Center, opening in September, 2019. The ultimate in experiential learning, Raider MakerSpace, allows students to conceive, fail, and persevere as they engage in creating things from the ground up. The Raider MakerSpace is a version of your old high school “shop class” re-engineered for today and beyond with equipment such as 3-D printers, poster makers, vinyl cutters, screen printers, digital video and sound production systems, and electronic and computer design. Bolstered in part by two grants totaling $20,000 from the Sandy Springs Society, with matching funds from the Riverwood Foundation and additional grants from Sandy Springs Education Force, this is only the second school-wide space of its kind in Fulton County Schools. The Raider MakerSpace supports our school’s strategic initiatives for student achievement and student focused learning. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate Raider MakerSpace opening in the permanent space will take place in October, 2019.
