In order to help prepare students for learning and working in the 21st Century, the Library at Banting and Best Public School has embarked on an exciting transformation!  The school library has always been a hub for learning but now it is a place where students can also interact with various technologies including the recent creation of a Maker Space.

 

Banting and Best has reinvented the school into an Innovation Lab, a place where students can turn ideas into reality. In this space, students can engage in coding activities, construction, building and design!  

 

This exciting learning space was designed to encourage and foster innovation in students and will provide students access to the tools they need to be successful in the 21st century.

 

Grade 3 students Emma, Suri and Seyon are thrilled about the opportunity to learn in their new space. "This year, our school started a Maker Space. It is an area where you build and create! We can use K’Nex to make windmills, butterflies, cars or other creative things. You can use the Maker Space when you visit the Library. At our Maker Space, you can also work on coding activities, such as Scratch, Kodable and other coding programs. We think our Maker Space is fun and it is a place where you can use your imagination to build and create", exclaim the students.
