Makerspaces

Wilemon has three makerspace areas that were generously funded by a grant from the Dart Foundation - Tinker Studio, REC Room, and Design Den. Two additional makerspace areas include Creation Station and the LEGO Wall. These unique learning spaces create opportunities for students to extend their learning outside of the classroom.
