The Rutgers Makerspace will open its doors to Middle School students for a week of innovation and invention. Students will work in collaborative teams to solve a problem, with the goal of developing an innovative product using the Engineering Design Process. Students will utilize a similar process as they would for Science Olympiad, Odyssey of the Mind, and/or STEAM Tank. Tool safety will begin on day 1, with students being able to use key Makerspace tools, such as 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC machines as they design their prototypes during the week. On day 5, students will create a pitch for a Shark Tank like proposal on the last day sharing evidence from their engineering notebooks and prototypes.

According to the University's current event protocol, face coverings will be required of all guests entering Rutgers buildings (including parent(s) or guardian(s) during drop-off & pick-up). All program participants, when entering the program, MUST provide proof of vaccination or negative PCR test from a test taken no more than 72 hours before the start of the day, or they will be denied entry until proper documentation is received.

High school students will utilize the Makerspace to design their own solutions to a problem, with the goal of developing an innovative product or process. Students will utilize a similar process as they would for Science Olympiad, Odyssey of the Mind, and/or STEAM Tank. Working in collaborative teams, they will follow the Engineering Design Process to build solutions designed in CAD programs and fabricated using key Makerspace tools, such as 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC machines. Students will create a pitch for a Shark Tank like proposal on the last day sharing evidence from their engineering notebooks and prototypes.

According to the University's current event protocol, face coverings will be required of all guests entering Rutgers buildings (including parent(s) or guardian(s) during drop-off & pick-up).
