About the Program
This program is designed to provide 9th & 10th grade students with a unique experience in a collaborative makerspace environment where they explore technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Students progress through multiple modules in Technology & Application of Science including Structural and Mechanical Design/ Fabrication, Information Technology, Web & Digital Communications, and Visual Art. Each module consists of a variety of projects that are designed to help students develop their knowledge of 2D and 3D design, rapid prototyping, communication, problem-solving, data analysis, and critical thinking skills.
Throughout this course, students have access to a variety of resources including traditional hand tools, power tools, and computer-controlled equipment such as a vinyl cutter, 3D printers, CNC routers, and a laser cutter. In addition, they will be introduced to mechatronics through the design and fabrication of a computer (Arduino) controlled mechanical system.
