Make It! Innovation Design Lab

This course is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the UW’s state-of-the-art maker space, McCarty Innovation and Learning Lab (The MILL). Working alongside UW staff and students, you’ll turn your creative ideas into reality. Using emerging technology such as a 3-D printer, laser cutter, water jet cutter, and desktop CNC machine, blended with 3-D modeling, microcontroller, and computer programming, you’ll design a variety of projects. Past projects have included autonomous vehicles, wind turbines, prosthetic limbs and other machines like a card shuffler.

Make It! will be a team-centered environment where you’ll explore your interests and grow your talents, culminating with a group presentation on the final afternoon, when parents and families will be invited to view the projects and hear about the learning process directly from participants. This program is offered through a partnership with The MILL, Housing & Food Services and Summer Youth Programs.

Who It’s For

This course is for incoming 9th to 12th graders.
