MOBILE MAKER STATIONS WHERE SHOP MEETS STEM
In February 2016, the Colorado Maker Hub team won the DPS Imaginarium Challenge to bring innovation to making. Our idea was to overcome the roadblocks to bringing making to education (lack of access, curriculum, and educator support) with a mobile I.D.E.A. lab that moves from classroom to classroom inside a school, filled with equipment for Invention, Design, Engineering and Arts. In addition, the IdeaLab Go has maker projects and support for educators to leap into hands on making in their classrooms.
IdeaLab Go! is stocked with a wide range of equipment and tools curated from companies such as SparkFun Electronics, Aleph Objects, and more that enable students to develop lifelong skills in:
– 3D printing
– cutting and engraving
– building/hand tools
– wood and metal working
and, of course, imagination!
