Dare to create? Kids who love making and learning will love the new Seeker Space at Middle Tennessee Christian School (MTCS). It’s one of the first of its kind collaborative spaces for students in grades PK – 5 to meet up for making, learning, sharing and exploring.
“Technology in today’s world makes learning relevant,” says Kelley Mullins, director of technology at MTCS. “Coding provides children with opportunities to develop higher order thinking skills and the ability to collaborate, problem solve and think more critically. The Seeker Space will provide the environment and tools to practice all of these skills as well as many more.”
In this new space, students have access to a 3D printer; Dash and Dot robots to use for coding and programming; a sewing station; a green screen for video productions; and an idea paint collaboration wall where they can organize and write project ideas on the wall. It helps to prepare students with skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and math with the use of guided curriculum from teachers and staff.
Mentorships are available to upperclassmen who can assist younger grades in utilizing the space, too.
MTCS is a private school serving grades PK – 12 that opened in 1960. It’s located at 100 E. MTCS Road in Murfreesboro. Call 615-893-0601 or visit mtcscougars.org.
