WEST MILFORD – Students of the Westbrook Elementary School got together to build a variety of things Feb. 25 as part of “Makerspace” night, sponsored by the school’s PTA.
According to the school, Makerspace is any area where people gather to build and create, and provides hands-on, creative ways, for students to invent, design, build and experiment.
Student benefits include critical thinking skills, problem solving, collaboration, and increased confidence.
