SCIFI is yet to become fully utilized. This first year, we will be using the spaces for clubs and electives mostly and of course they will be available for students who want to tinker, do some additional projects or just explore the space. Our plan is to eventually open the space to the whole ACS community. As educators we are eager to implement some of the possibilities of our makerspace within the curriculum so that every ACS student can experience the technologies first hand. Because you do not always know if you will like something before you actually try it and we are hopeful that among our students there are those that will become lifetime makers or choose a career path, which they may trace back to their ACS SCIFI experience.
