• Boiler Room

  • The Boiler Room is a makerspace for students in grades 3rd through 6th and was formerly the wood shop for Duquesne High School. Within the Boiler Room, students are able to use tools like vinyl cutters, sublimation printers, 3D printers and laser engravers to purposefully integrate making into instructional content. Students during the 2019-2020 school year have designed vinyl cut decals to add to recycling bins to distribute to classrooms in order to recycle paper. They have also laser engraved earrings using draft board and showcased their creations at STEAM events in the Pittsburgh area. Students have the opportunity to become creators, designers, and innovators inside the walls of the Boiler Room. The goal of the Boiler Room is to reach all students in a hands-on setting while providing prospect to students outside of a traditional classroom setting.
