Makerspace
Follow Along with the Engineers of Room 1 There has been a push in the United States to place a larger focus on STEM subjects (Science Technology Engineering Math). The STEM movement encourages classrooms to study all of the STEM subjects, and to learn how they work together. In Room 1 we will do this in our Maker Space. Follow along with what we're up to. Our 3D printer will be a part of this, but we've got a separate webpage for that.

The Plug-In Studio: collaborations in art + technology. The Street Arcade games were created through a collaboration between 13 teen artists and Plug-In Studio co-founders Steve Ciampaglia and Kerry Richardson. The games were originally intended to be played at the Street Arcade event, where the teen artists directly engaged community members in discussions about the issues...you can play them online...in your browser.
