Discussion about Sale Creek eLab


(Michael Caraccio) #1

Our fabrication space is amazing. Currently our school has one CTE (Career and Technical Education) teacher. He teaches three levels of Structural Systems, which encompasses safety and all types of construction. The fab lab is used to demonstrate safety and prep work before the classes head outside to build sheds or a tiny house. Our CTE teacher has partnered with our Applied Mathematical Concepts teacher to use math from their class to design and build a tiny house from scratch. Two-thirds of our completers of this math class went straight to work in the skilled trades following graduation. The remaining one-third enrolled in college, with the majority enrolling in an applied science major. Our space is also used by the students to design and create their own textiles. Teams have come together to make t-shirts, water bottles, etc.

In closing, this space is used by the students, for the students, to beautify our campus and prepare themselves for a possible career.

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