Now that you’re an official “maker,” we’re taking your design knowledge to the next level. Here, you’ll study product design in even more detail. Bring your imagination and create real solutions to real problems with your fun ideas.

What is a Makerspace? It’s a collaborative setting where students learn to explore their imaginations and design their ideas. Picture a science lab, woodshop, computer lab, and art studio all blended together for a hands-on educational experience.
