LEGO Makerspace is Back


Please encourage your students to join us for the next LEGO Makerspace.

Hogwarts Castle is only half-built and the “wizarding” students need their classrooms! The Moving Staircases and Dumbledore’s Office were completed last semester and we hope that more challenging construction awaits us.

This event will be held in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library at a table near the reference desk on Wednesday, April 21 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
