Look in the mirror and see yourself in STEM! Let’s make a self-portrait (that’s a picture of yourself) using a variety of objects. Maybe these objects reflect your interests or have a special meaning for you. These portraits will become community art pieces which will be on public display at CME, the Ames Mansion at Borderland State Park and the Borderland Visitor Center!

During STEM week, we are paying homage to local STEM Renaissance woman Blanche Ames – a scientist, engineer and inventor. Thanks to the Southeastern Massachusetts STEM Network for helping us make STEM Week so awesome!

Our MakerSpace is a place for creativity to come to life through planning, constructing, testing and redesigning. If your design doesn’t work the way you envisioned, simply noodle a way to fix it! It’s a trial and error process and teaches kids to rely on themselves to problem-solve.
