Re-imagine Career and Technical education– Ensure every D6 student (grades 6-12) has access to career technical education as part of his or her core academic program in a way that builds on our current CTE programs; connects D6 students to local entrepreneurs, experts in trades, and skilled artisans; and builds community.
What is a MakerSpace?
MakerSpaces provide the tools and equipment required to design, prototype and manufacture virtually anything-all under one roof. They typically include both traditional equipment and tools along with new technology like 3D printers, digital fabrication, and computer-aided design labs. The shared space allows individuals to create, invent and learn in an environment that encourages collaboration and problem-solving. Most- MakerSpaces operate on a “membership model” (like a gym membership) and offer classes, space to store projects, and entrepreneurial assistance.
