The program includes application and strategies with the foundational concepts and processes for fabrication and design, including the familiarization and use of makerspace and fabrication laboratory tools.
Program Learning Outcomes:
-The student will have acquired the necessary basic skills to create and manage a makerspace or fabrication lab in schools, community centers, and library environments.
-The student will be able to demonstrate appropriate critical thinking and problem-solving skills, creative skills, and collaborative and teamwork skills to provide assistance in a maker or fabrication environment.
Current libraries, community centers, and schools are in dire need of trained, qualified adults to supervise, maintain, and create makerspaces or fabrication laboratories to build 21st century skills of critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity and imagination, and collaboration and teamwork. This innovative program will allow schools to hire individuals as classified personnel to assist faculty with student learning and exploration in makerspaces.
