Manteno Elementary School Makerspace
Parents and Community Members,
We have created our vision at Manteno Elementary School creating a space dedicated to STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math) and provide students with opportunities to work collaboratively, experiment, tinker, explore through inquiry, and problem-solve. Within the space, we incorporate a range of materials from low-tech arts and crafts to high-tech software and electronics for students of all grade levels.
Working with our PTO
Over the years, our PTO has been gracious in supporting our classrooms and students. They have provided items such as: novels, STEM bin activities, Makerspace room activities, and flexible seating options.
Please help us with keeping our Makerspace room functioning. We are need of the following materials:
Our list of ideas is always evolving. Any support is welcomed and appreciated! We hope the Makerspace creates a community of “makers” at Manteno Elementary. Thank you for your support - it is what makes Manteno Elementary School such an amazing place!

Our 2021 walkathon has been cancelled until the next school year.
