‘The Edge’ Outdoor Makerspace

'The Edge' Outdoor Makerspace

“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” ~ C. S. Lewis

Have you ever stood on The Edge of God’s greatness…that precise moment where curiosity and inquiry turn on the switch to imaginative and innovative ideas that reshape learning and unlock solutions? When our students step foot into our brand-new outdoor makerspace, they will embark on exciting adventures, discoveries, and experiences! The Edge stands for Engineer, Design, Grow, and Experiment. Each day they will have an opportunity to explore one of three areas: Art Park, the Imagination Playground, or the Garden of Promise. Read more about each of these three areas below! Additionally, they will use their STEAM skills of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math to work collaboratively with their peers, creatively problem solve, and effectively communicate ideas and solutions. They will soon discover that every day is a new day to start over and do something great!

“This is the day that the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!” Psalms 118:24

The Art Park – What better place to get students’ creative juices flowing than being surrounded by God’s outdoor artistry!? Students will be able to take art outside of the classroom walls and use the beauty around them to inspire their latest masterpieces.

The Imagination Playground – Traditional playgrounds consist primarily of fixed equipment, such as slides, monkey bars and teeter-totters, all of which focus on developing children’s gross motor skills. The Imagination Playground, on the other hand, is an interactive, transformable environment that prompts children to manipulate their environment and create a play space all their own. It allows students to exercise their minds as well as their muscles!

The Garden of Promise – This ‘green’, collaborative garden space will allow each grade level to take ownership of their own section of the garden, while teaching students the importance of caring for the environment, eating right, staying healthy, and growing in the knowledge and promises of God. This is one harvest we all will enjoy!
