The Hub

Endowment Project: The Hub

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.

Since spring 2017, the Foundation has supported maker-based learning by providing materials, training and events to support hands-on learning experiences around technology, computer science, design, making and engineering in PreK-8 Minnetonka schools. Foundation involvement provides open-ended student-driven learning experiences that encourage creativity, collaboration and teamwork to achieve a goal.
