Our Make Design Tinker Creed
We are the Allen-Stevenson makers. We follow our curiosity to see where it will take us. We explore electronics, engineering, programming, arts and crafts, and technology. We solve our own problems and pursue our own interests and passions. We also take on problems in the world. We repurpose and repair stuff and see beauty and utility in unwanted items. We take risks in order to be as creative as possible. We persevere when solutions evade us and we work through our disagreements. We share what we’ve learned with people near and far. We learn skills and processes that will serve us throughout our lives. We are the Allen-Stevenson makers!
