On June 17, we were thrilled to announce the 10 CTE Makeover Challenge prize winners at the White House Champions of Change for Making event. To help them put their makerspace plans into action, each winning school received $20,000 and a share of in-kind prizes donated by sponsors and valued at $375,000. Since the announcement, the schools have been working hard to transform a space in their school into a state of the art makerspace for students to participate in hands-on learning and learn valuable career and technical skills.
From mobile makerlabs to autoshop libraries to entrepreneurship hubs, these 10 makerspaces will serve as exceptional models for all schools working on developing their own making programs. To highlight each winner’s plans and build-out progress, we’ve launched a Winners section featuring all 10 schools.
Take a look at these exemplary makerspaces from schools across the nation:
- Burlington Technical Center, Burlington, VT
