Makerspace

HAPPINESS IS THE RIGHT HIGH SCHOOL.

Learning can be hard. It can also be exciting, and can change someone’s life forever. It should never be boring, but that isn’t always the case in traditional learning environments, and we strive for it to never be the case at FlexTech Novi.
 
Flex Tech High School-Novi instills in their students a love of learning and wants school to be a place for kids to explore real problems in a creative environment. In line with the belief that students learn best by doing, we invested in a state-of-the-art makerspace. Makerspaces are community studio spaces where people gather together to build, share resources, experiment with new tools and technologies, tinker, and create.

Our student-makers tackle challenging tasks, and work together in teams.

OUR EQUIPMENT

Our makers prototype new ideas using cutting edge technology such as laser engravers, 3D printers, vinyl cutters, and design software.
 

Makers inhabit a spirit of innovation and problem solving.

 
 
 
Flex Tech High Schools are home to the only two certified Maker Educators in Michigan. Beth Steckelberg and Christopher Quiambao both earned their Maker Certificates through Sonoma State University.
