  • Students Make Shea Butter at MVHS Library

    Building a creative community in the Library’s Makerspace is crucial to the direction that Mount Vernon School Libraries envision. The aim of the MakerSpace is to provide students with an avenue to create, produce, and connect with other students. We establish an environment that is fun, practical, and whereby the learning is meaningful. Students can take these additional skills and ideas beyond Mount Vernon to thrive. Hence, on December 19, 2019, the Makerspace had its first, “Unleash Your Creativity,” event where students learned how to create their own shea body butter with organic ingredients. It was a great turnout. We hosted 15 students and they were all able to take home a sample of the product they made. It is our hope that we can do more of these events to inspire students’ creativity, while instilling confidence in them to become their own makers and producers. Please see a few photos below from the event.
