Lamar County School District 21st CCLC

The Lamar County School District 21st CCLC is a before and after school program that provides engaging and high quality Makerspace activities at each middle school.. The program will also offer family enrichment through Make and Take Family Nights and Family Maker Saturdays. The goal of the Makerspace program is to improve academic achievement in mathematics and science and develop 21st Century Learning Skills for 135 6-8th grade students.

Programming includes guided activities, open lab, and tutoring. During guided activities, students will develop no tech, low tech, and high tech Maker skills using the Growth Mindset Model and hands-on experiences. Students will also learn digital electronics and programming to create interactive projects. Open lab time will allow students to design and create projects based on their own interest and skill level. During robotics competition season, some students will use open lab time to design, create, and build a competition robot. To provide students with additional help with assignments, a high school peer tutor will be provided for students during after school hours. Site coordinators will work teachers to ensure student deficiencies are addressed in tutoring sessions.
