Discussion about VW eLab at Chattanooga High Center for Creative Arts

(Nader Mohyuddin) #1

A space to make art, our Volkswagen eLab is a lively makerspace located between two math classrooms and is supervised by math and art faculty. Vinyl cutting has been infused into collage artwork featured prominently at an exhibition, laser cut shadow puppets brought laughter to our children’s theatre performances, CNC milled set decorations have beautified our opera, 3D printing supplied candle holders for our literary gala, and nearly a hundred geometry students used proportional reasoning to design and fabricate gifts for each other–and that’s just our first semester of operation. A weekly electronics and maker club meets every Thursday after school for additional lab time.

This is the general thread for discussing the lab; the thread is also visible on its page at https://www.fablabs.io/labs/ccavwelab
