The Hub

New Endowment Project: The Hub

In spring 2017, foundation trustees and the school board approved the our involvement in enhancing materials for the tonka codes curricular program and supporting maker-based learning.

Specifically, we will provide materials, training and events to support hands-on learning experiences around technology, computer science, design, making and engineering in K-8 Minnetonka schools. Foundation involvement will provide open-ended student-driven learning experiences that encourage creativity, collaboration and teamwork to achieve a goal.

WHY WHAT HOW

With this project, our goals include:

  • Minnetonka students will become creators and inventors.
  • The goal is not only to give kids tools to build the things they can imagine, but to imagine the world they can build.
  • These skill sets make our students into agile and collaborative problem-solvers, highly employable and successful in the dynamic workplaces of the 21st century.

THINK | INNOVATE | CREATE

Making promotes learning by doing.

The world is changing at a fantastic speed. The future requires people who can problem-solve, adapt, and communicate in workplaces and environments that are increasingly complex. The Hub invites Minnetonka students to build the world they can imagine..
