    Volunteers are needed to keep our MakerSpace thriving and available to classes and students. Please consider volunteering WEEKLY for a time slot! Contact Ritamarie Benoit, Alden School Curriculum Supervisor, at rbenoit@duxbury.k12.ma.us with any questions. CLICK HERE to volunteer to help with Maker Space and Maker Recess

    Maker Recess (10:30 - 12:45) Students can sign up to go the Maker Space during recess.

    • Each grade cycles through so volunteers see three groups of approximately 20 students on a given day.
    • Students come by grade level from any classes during recess for about 25 minutes (including clean up time).
    • Kids use things such as Lego’s, Kinex, Strawbees, and MagnaTiles and they are very self-motivated.
    • Volunteers ensure the students use materials carefully, are working on appropriate tasks, and clean up before they leave for lunch.

    Maker Space with Classes (8:15 - 10:30 OR 12:45 - 2:00)

    • Volunteers help organize the Maker Space before/after class visits and help students during their time in the Maker Space.
    • Class times in the Maker Space vary from week to week. If you would like to volunteer during your chid's time at the Maker Space, please contact your teacher for the best times to sign up.

    Volunteers quiz the students on their knowledge of that month's map and stamp the student's passport based on the level of knowledge.
