Build creativity, confidence, and problem-solving skills.

A Makerspace is a collaborative space where students gather to create, invent, and learn. The Ramona MakerDen is outfitted with some of the latest programming, prototyping, fabrication, and manufacturing equipment to help students develop their design skills and bring their imaginations to life.

"In our MakerDen we build collaborative curiosity, empower rich learning experiences that 21st Century education demands, push boundaries so we DREAM BIG, and inspire students to imagine, design, create, and innovate."Brian Kays, Director of Innovation and Technology Integration
In our MakerDen, students:
  • use tools to solve problems
  • collaborate with others
  • rapid prototype an idea on one of four 3D printers
  • fabricate 3D parts in aluminum or steel on a Tormach PCNC machine
  • manufacture wearable electronics with arduinos and sewing machines
  • engrave on aluminum, leather, and wood with our ULS 50 Watt laser and more

Every student learns and practices the design process by completing design and programming projects infused in our curriculum.

Students develop their leadership skills by serving as NINJAs (Need Information Now, Just Ask) who train their peers to use the equipment and as volunteers in a global network who use 3D printers to create prosthetic hands for children.

Students may also create their own independent, entrepreneurial projects.
