MakerSpaces at Friends School of Baltimore Foster Creativity

The former Chairman of the Board and CEO of The Rouse Company, Anthony W. Deering has served in several executive capacities over the years. A Director at multiple companies, including Brixmor Property Group, Anthony W. Deering also functions as the Chairman of Exeter Capital, LLC, and a Trustee of such community institutions as Friends School of Baltimore.

A co-educational college preparatory institution, Friends School has been committed to promoting Quaker values since its establishment in 1784. Toward this end, it maintains a unique curriculum that is supplemented by its MakerSpaces, which were designed in accordance with the maker movement, an international way of thinking that promotes creativity and technological understanding.

The MakerSpaces at Friends School are designed for functionality. Due to their interchangeability, students can use them as a garage, a science lab, an art studio, or a wood shop to create, design, and test new ideas. In doing so, students have the opportunity to respond to their traditional classroom instruction in a creative way and boost their confidence.

Students are given various opportunities within the MakerSpaces based on their age. While Lower School students can use them to research subjects in which they are interested, Middle School students are given the opportunity to sew costumes and create musical instruments and Upper School students can create and prototype ideas for, among other things, small engines.
