Make Something!


Make SomethingIt’s been awhile…sorry!

However, we have been very busy here in the Middle School!

First of all, the MS MakerSpace has been rebranded.  Our Middle School students now call this space, “NERDVANA”!

As for the rest, the graphic above pretty much tells our tale…

1.  Fifth Grade Dragon Boat Races were the best yet!

2.  Curious minds lead us to dismantling many old computers and repurposing some of their parts.

3.  Re-mixing music occurred here in Nerdvana!

4.  Stuffed sharks!

5.  Created prosthetic limbs  with skill and precision.

6.  Produced Podcasts for 6th grade.

7.  Designed interesting products for the 7th Grade Toy Projects.

8.  Used in-house resources like USM’s skilled craftsman/woodworker, Mr. Jacobs, create a student designed workbench.

9.  Printed numerous object with our innovative 3D Printer.

It is a great time to be a middle school student here at University School of Milwaukee!
