There’s a bit of excitement over some new green at Edinboro Elementary School.

The elementary school’s library is making Lego part of its new makerspace initiative.

“This is a new trend in libraries all over the country, and I’m excited to now join that trend,” said Edinboro Elementary librarian Michelle Androstic. “The students were very excited about the Lego wall and have been building and creating like crazy since our ‘grand opening’.”

Androstic, along with John Walsh from General McLane’s Service Center, created a new Lego wall from a portion of countertop and framed it to hang Lego baseplates. The Lego wall is now made up of 42, 10-inch by 10-inch green baseplates, and is a place where students can build and create during makerspace time in the library.

A makerspace is a sharing space where students gather to create, invent, discover, and most importantly, try something new through various tools and materials. Students aim to use errors and failures to achieve success in the activities. Depending on the space, time and resources available, each makerspace varies and is unique to the school.
