The WINGS Educational Foundation awarded its second S.T.E.A.M. Collaborative WINGS Grant to Washington Middle School on Thursday, Sept. 15, during the annual WINGS Hall of Honor Dinner.

The $9,100 grant will be used to transform the school library into a “makerspace,” a flexible, creative, collaborative learning environment that allows students to create and self-direct their learning by making.

The improvements will not impact the book collection in the library, but will modernize the classroom space and provide resources including a 3D printer, animation studio tools, video display monitor, robotic ball, kits for building and programming circuits, and other components to build, capture, design and store.

"In the makerspace, students are encouraged to be innovative, collaborate, and problem solve," said WMS Library Media Specialist Valerie Jankowski. "Technology-based activities are the primary focus of makerspaces, but they can also include other activities, such as writing, origami, and knitting. If it can be 'made', it can be included in the makerspace."

WINGS is the educational foundation for the School District of Washington.
Washington Middle School staff accepting the award include were Valerie Jankowski, Danielle Snider, Melissa Ziegler, Emily Hardee and Logan Stapp.
WINGS members presenting the grant were Brad Mitchell, Dawn Kitchell, Casey Zastrow and Cindy Lohmeyer.
