Uplands Maker Mobile Visits Washington High School

Washington community Schools
Tori Peterson

Loaded with a full suite of maker tools, including 3D printers, laser cutters, Cricut machines, sewing machines, CNC routers and electronics, as well as hand tools, crafting, and carpentry tools, the Uplands Maker Mobile brings making to schools and organizations through workshops with children or adults, and development and training for professionals or teachers.

Sophomores in the C3PO cohort classes at Washington High School spent the week utilizing the makerspace to create projects to go along with their Greek History unit. Student projects were displayed in a “museum” for all Washington High School students and staff to experience. 

The mobile makerspace, jointly funded by IU, IU Center for Rural Engagement, ROI, and Radius Indiana, supports communities by bringing access to making across rural areas and supporting communities to establish a culture of making, critical thinking, and problem solving.
