WIE are Makers

Come experience Maryland Engineering through hands-on making with WIE are Makers! This half-day workshop is geared towards middle school girls, though open to all. The hands-on workshop introduces participants to the digital design and fabrication resources at Terrapin Works, which enables rapid prototyping in the A. James Clark School of Engineering and University of Maryland. Participants will utilize makerspace resources (CAD, 3D printing, laser cutting, etc.) to complete a mini LED lit acrylic sign "make and take" project, engage with current engineering students, and tour the engineering resources at Terrapin Works.
