Participating students will learn about design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality and social entrepreneurship, in addition to receiving mentorship, access to next-gen technology and hands-on training. The workshop is inclusive and welcomes all genders and nonbinary youth. Designed to create a more diverse pipeline for future careers in STEM fields, no prior knowledge or experience is required.
