The (maker)SPACE—Supporting Prototyping And Creativity in Education—program is designed for people who are interested in honing their maker skills and are seeking employment in fabrication laboratories and makerspaces within community centers, libraries, and educational settings. The program provides instruction and support for building models and prototypes, strategies to spark innovation and invention, and creative problem-solving and collaboration.
Participants will learn how to use all of the essential tools of a Makerspace, including 3D Printers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters, CNC machines, electronics, and hand/power tools. With the included starter pack of materials and a yearlong membership to the Makerspace, participants will have plenty of opportunities to practice new skills and will enjoy access to ongoing support from a dedicated and skilled staff.
As part of the program, participants will complete all of the courses required to earn the Makerspace Coordinator Certificate. This certificate— currently the only one in California that is state-approved—is ideal for classified and certificated personnel at school sites, community center volunteers and employees, librarians and assistants, and anyone interested in becoming a creative and collaborative member of a makerspace.
The Winter cohort will include eight virtual Friday evening sessions and eight in-person full day Saturday sessions, currently scheduled for the following dates in 2021:
January 8th and 9th
February 5th and 6th
March 12 and 13
April 16 and 17
May 14 and 15
June 11 and 12
July 9 and 10
August 6 and 7
Please note that we are limited to running one cohort at a time, and space is EXTREMELY limited in a cohort. Sign up as early as possible to guarantee your spot!
Tickets are limited to California residents who have been continuously residing in the state for at least two years. Non-residents should contact email@example.com to discuss alternative methods for reserving a space in the program.
