Nedlam’s Workshop IS a recently restylized, formerly underutilized woodshop in the basement of Malden High School. Nedlam — Malden spelled backwards — is also the name of the school’s lion mascot. Over the course of this school year the space has turned from a near-abandoned woodworking shop into a humming hub for inquiry-based arts and engineering projects at the high school. The space now boasts brightly painted walls, woodworking tools and equipment, numerous Lego EV3 robotics sets, a 3D printer, electronics and circuitry stations, soldering materials, and a guitar-making area. The space is open for students to use after school and, this term, it’s home to a brand new school-day elective.
