Maker Space

The Canterbury Primary School Maker Space is home to many exciting opportunities for students to explore their passions and work collaboratively with others to create new and exciting solutions to real world problems.  Students explore and learn core curriculum content through authentic and real world problems and applications.  The room itself is a digitally rich environment that promotes learning through trial and error and empowers students to take charge of their learning.  Student leadership in the space is encouraged and students are often learning with and from one another.
