South Pointe High Makerspace
To provide students a continuum of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Mathematics) programming from kindergarten through 12th grade, South Pointe High School began applying STEAM principles in its instruction in 2015. This "makerspace" renovation will provide students a state-of-the-art space to explore, design, build, and test real-world applications. A committee of parents, teachers, and administrators have worked in partnership with Charlotte-based KSQ Design to purposefully design this space. A unique part of this project is that South Pointe alumnae Katie Nicholson, who is an architect-in-training with KSQ, has been instrumental in the design process.
