CILC's Community of Learning Curricular Resources and Maker Space

CILC Curricular Resources and Maker Space logo

Here you will find pre- and/or post-program activities. These activities are meant to complement the Community of Learning program that students participate in.

For those programs that include a Maker activity, we will include the directions and pictures of completed student projects!

We hope these resources allow you to extend the learning.
