Kindergarten Students Have Got It "MADE" Thanks to a Recent Field Trip


The Magic House @ MADE is an exciting new creative space just down the road from the U. City Loop on Delmar Boulevard.

On Friday and Tuesday, November 15 and 19, all kindergarten classes from Barbara C. Jordan and Flynn Park elementary schools were able to visit for free thanks to a KDG Science STEM Extension Field Trip grant from The Magic House, which opened the @ MADE space to extend its reach from the suburbs to youth in urban and surrounding St. Louis.

The Barbara C. Jordan and Flynn Park children were the first two classes to visit through the field trip grant. They received hands-on experience with tools and modern materials used to essentially make and invent new things.

MADE stands for the new venue’s for creativity sections: a Makers’ Space, an Artists’ Studio, a Designers’ Lab, and an Entrepreneurs’ Marketplace.

Students had the opportunity to do stop-action video. Others worked with an Ozone robot or a 3-D printer. And others used different types of kid-friendly building materials to design structures.

It was a great day of sparking imaginations outside of the classroom. The field trip embodied the District’s vision of Learning Reimagined which aims to provide students with modern, rigorous and relevant learning experiences.

We thank the Magic House @ MADE for this tremendous opportunity for our students.
