Registration open for Maker Academy 2014

Posted April 30, 2014

The ACU Maker Lab will offer its first set of Maker Academy workshops this summer. Students learn how to think like designers, then quickly prototype and fabricate their creations using cutting-edge digital technology.

Nil Santana, director of ACU's Maker Lab, says:

"This is an exciting time for us at the Maker Lab as the creative learning revolution continues to gain force around the world. The availability of new tools and technology – things like 3D printers, microprocessors, and wearable – are coming on the scene at an unprecedented pace. 

At the Maker Lab we believe the next wave of critical thinkers must also embrace critical making. Simply stated, the Maker Movement creates spaces for affordable and quick production while sharing tools and ideas online. This builds a collaborative community of global problem-solvers and, as a result, countless opportunities to learn by doing."

One-Day Camp: June 10
