Gerson School Makerspace Update

The pieces are starting to come together!

Since we last met in June 2022 for our annual Keeping the Promise event, Applewood Centers has been very busy with the newest enhancement to the Gerson School, our alternative day school for students in grades 6-12 who benefit from a personalized, therapeutic environment. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we are able to create a Makerspace! This innovation lab will enable Gerson staff to integrate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) into the curriculum, building upon the already impressive school program. The Makerspace will provide the necessary tools and resources for students to have a hands-on, personalized, and collaborative experience while also expressing their unique creativity in a modern learning space.
