Implement 3D printing software programs, computational thinking activities, green screen, and other STEM programs.
Connect with top scientists, educators, engineers, artists, and community organizers to share best practices for achieving community buy-in.
Identify funding opportunities and gain insights about how to connect your organization's makerspace to community partners.
