A crucial part of the Makerspace mission is working with students beyond the College, especially those from underrepresented groups who are interested in engineering and science. The staff will work with schools and organizations to explore workshops and curricular support, such as using technology in the classroom.
We can loan supplies and services to you, or our undergraduates can go to your location. We are in the process of aligning our activities with the Massachusetts State Technology and Engineering Standards, and are planning a professional development workshop for teachers. We regularly offer iDesign-style workshops for middle and high school students, including a week-long summer camp.
Although we are currently limited in time and funding, we welcome conversations as we build capacity and determine what is most useful to our community collaborators.
