Summer Project
"We’re currently working on a new maker education outreach program. This includes a 28′ trailer that will become a mobile maker lab that we can take to schools. This program includes several curricular modules that we’re creating with local teachers so that we can support their activities in meaningful ways."

"Having teachers contribute to these activities and be a part of our team benefits us as well as the teachers. We often maintain a relationship with the teachers once they leave, supporting their efforts through our outreach program."

“The Summer Projects provide a fantastic partnership between local teachers and engineering organizations in Silicon Valley. We’re very pleased that our partnership helps the teachers and their students by bringing real-world examples into the classroom.”
