Learning Resource Center (LRC)

Welcome to the Brown Elementary Learning Resource Center! The Learning Resource Center incorprates learning opportunities, technology, and a Maker Space room. Here students accept new challenges and find solutions by a self-directed learning model! Students participate in the Engineering Design Process when they come to the Maker Space. They have opportunities to create products that require critical thinking, collaboration and grit!
Maker Space

"A makerspace can best be defined as a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore, and discover using a variety of tools and materials."

- Diana Rendina
