The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Technology) curriculum is an important part of all levels of education. To provide hands on learning and to better prepare all students, the Makerspace has become an important addition to schools and public libraries. According to Makerspace.com, it  is a "collaborative workspace that uses high tech materials (3-D printers, sewing machines) to low tech materials (Legos, cardboard) for making, learning, exploring and sharing."  

 
Rosemont Elementary has taken the initial steps to provide Makerspace opportunities for the students. The school began slowly with a Lego board and legos for the students to come in and design their own creations and  using old microscopes to view slides, With the donation of a 3-D printer, Rosemont can start the next phase of the Makerspace area.  The 3-D printer was donated to the school by Mr. Greg & Mrs. Mary Ann Keck.‚Äč
