Shull Middle School Makerspace

The Shull School  Makerspace is a community collaborative space for students and teachers to turn ideas they are passionate about into reality. Students in the MakerSpace are taught to take control of their own learning and have an active role in deciding how they use the room. 

This LibGuide is for middle school students that are interested in learning to code and computer science. There is something for everyone from beginner to advanced. It's always a good time to learn something new.
