This is our story. We're creators, collaborators, thinkers, explorers, instigators, dreamers and doers. We think side-by-side. We work hand-in-hand. And we solve problems, together. We come here to seek the best for ourselves, our campus and our community. And when we leave, we use this mindset to shape the world.
Welcome to HIVE at Lakeland Community College. Our mission is to be a catalyst for individual confidence and community connection by offering a place for hands-on learning, collaborative problem-solving, design thinking and creative experimentation to prepare students for success in college, career and life.
HIVE is a place for making, but it's much more than a makerspace. Students and community members will learn to use new tools and work with their hands, but, at its best, hands-on learning is not about materials or equipment. The heart of HIVE is a new mindset - an attitude toward problem-solving that is open-minded, collaborative, action-oriented and optimistic. The purpose of this mindset is to support the development of 21st century skills such as critical thinking, communication, creativity and collaboration.
Keep an open mind - this is a judge-free zone.
Team up - two minds (or more) are better than one.
Embrace mistakes - when in doubt, just try it.
Believe it's possible - stay optimistic about what could be.
Make it yours - take ownership and find your own way.
