Today you heard feet shuffling between different 3D printers and the laser engraver, tools being used on an arduino, and keys being typed away as cool new classes are being planned for the space. Take a further look and see the magic!
School may be out, but thanks to Catylator’s summer program these kids are keeping the creative juices flowing. Last week marked the premier summer camp session offered by the Makerspace, ENG 101: An introduction to engineering design and desktop manufacturing.
This weekend Catylator Makerspace supported the SHINE Lead Don’t Follow Teen Leadership Retreat at American University. Shaping Healthy Identities through New Experiences (SHINE), a program of The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, prepares young people to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood.
Catylator Makerspace has been supporting the integration of Maker technology and project based learning into the classroom at local Washington DC schools. It is a tremendously rewarding experience and with our approach we are quickly starting to see the desired outcome of engaged students driving their learning in the classroom.
