This plan was years in the making now it has finally come to reality.

News 10s porsha williams explains how there new career media center works.

It all started from a digital learning grant worth thousands of dollars.

And a vision to turn there library into more than a space where students come to read.

The mission is to help students find ways to become active and effective users of information... [take pkg outcue: hands on way duration:1:15] shannon gerig the schools counselor came up with this idea two years ago.

"career media center where kids could spend time researching for college applications, researching what kind of jobs they want, reading a book and also we wanted to incorporate stem.

So they have hands on learning and experience to maybe think about what they want to do for their future."

The 1st maker space helps students learn about science technology engineering and math.

"basically it's an area where kids can come and make stuff.

So it could be building lego's working with robots using machinery and tools and stuff that they would use in shop class."

She says the response from the kids has been positive... and she tells me she has received good feedback.

"when they do get the opportunity to use the stuff i think they're excited to do different stuff and not just books and reading books and ya know playing on their ipad."

"this allows them to get outside of a regular classroom and explore and learn grow in a way you wouldn't in a regular classroom.

Like a hands on way."
