Sponsor a High School to Give Students the Experience of Making
Teachers and students in high schools throughout Chicagoland and collar counties will partner with DePaul faculty and students to build a $1K makerspace in their own school. We are targeting high schools in our region who are unable to offer students this unique and tangible STEM experience in digital fabrication and embedded systems development. The high school teachers earn CEUs and students receive a small stipend. Each high school will receive a:
3D printer kit with supplies to build and modify;
CNC router kit with an enclosure to build;
Raspberry PI, keyboard, mouse and monitor to assemble a dedicated computer preloaded with open source software and Python programming instructional modules; and an Electronics kit.
Thirty hours of curriculum and support will be delivered by DePaul faculty and a Teaching Assistant via Zoom. As high schools are added to the network, we will build a regionally-based platform to allow collaboration and share information about using the kit.
Help students from under-resourced schools experience this transformative, hands-on STEM program!
