The Makerspace @ BSLC
Our Makerspace in Action!

Bay State Learning Center has a dedicated makerspace for our members (kids ages 10 - 19). We are looking for people with a experience or an interest in the makerspace movement.

We'd love volunteers who can excite youth and instruct maker projects both one time and ongoing. As well as people who are interested in helping us develop and build our space itself.

Makerspace Volunteers would get access to the makerspace as well as our workshop for their own personal use.

Visit us as baystatelearning.org to learn more about our center.

About Bay State Learning Center

Location:

45 Bullard Street, Dedham, MA 02026, US

Mission Statement

Bay State Learning Cooperative is a non-coercive learning environment for students ages 10-19. We do not have grades, tests, or specific curricular requirements. At Bay State Learning Center we think that the best and most lasting kind of learning is self-directed learning. At BSLC each student has the opportunity to work with a mentor to design a specialized learning program to fit his or her own needs, strengths, and interests. In addition to personalized support and a regular schedule of optional classes, BSLC provides a safe, comfortable environment where students can work, socialize, and thrive free of the coercion and pressure of traditional school.

Description

BSLC serves all kinds of students from successful straight A students who are bored or uninspired, to students who struggle with the imposed structure of school, to students who are disengaged and uninterested in standardized course work. Some want a better outlet for their creative ambitions and others have a specific area or discipline they want to focus on but find that the demands of school displace their interests. BSLC is for kids who need an open, flexible environment where they can find the security and freedom to succeed without irrelevant demands, arbitrary standardization, and institutional uniformity. Students like this can learn more and significantly improve their lives by leaving traditional school behind, and BSLC can provide them the opportunity to do so.
