Become a maker! This course is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the UW’s state‐of‐the‐art maker space, McCarty Innovation & Learning Lab (The MILL), and turn your creative ideas into reality. 

In this team‐centered environment, you’ll explore your interests and grow your talents through rapid prototyping and the engineering design process. Using emerging technology such as a 3‐D printers, laser cutters, water jet cutters, and desktop CNC machines, you'll design a variety of small projects.

Family and friends are invited to attend final presentations and hear more about the learning process directly from participants.

This program is offered through a partnership with The MILL, Housing & Food Services and Summer Youth Programs.
