Lori Fogle, a librarian at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School, and Susan Jinks, a instructional technology specialist at the school, are gradually transforming the library classroom at the school into Makerspace.

Last week, they installed a MakerBot Replicator 3-D printer, a WaterColorBot and a video green screen wall. The Makerspace, made possible through one of the Falls Church Education Foundation’s inaugural round of Super Grants, will soon be open for student use during lunch and after school.
