Launching The Hub to Promote Maker-Based Learning


Future workplaces will require people who can problem-solve, adapt, and communicate in environments that are increasingly complex.
 


With $200,000 from our Endowment Fund, the Foundation launched The Hub last year. We provided plugged and unplugged materials to enhance the tonka curricular program and support maker-based learning in all PreK-8 Minnetonka schools.

 

 

The Hub materials provided by the Foundation encourage open-ended student-driven learning experiences that encourage creativity, collaboration and teamwork to achieve a goal.
