With The Hub we can try things, and that’s how we learn. Y
ou get to do new things and try things. We have time to experiment, make mistakes, and figure out how to fix it.

Future workplaces will require people who can problem-solve, adapt and communicate in environments that are increasingly complex.
With $200,000 from our Endowment Fund, the Foundation launched The Hub last year. We provided plugged and unplugged materials to enhance the tonka curricular program and support maker-based learning in all PreK-8 Minnetonka schools.
The Hub materials provided by the Foundation encourage open-ended student-driven learning experiences that encourage creativity, collaboration and teamwork to achieve a goal.
Students were able
to work in groups with hands-on learning materials which I would not have been able to provide without The Hub.

We loved creating 3D images and creative art with The Hub to show what we were thinking. Students enjoyed being creative.
