Mobile Lab Naming Contest
The Educational Technology and Foundations Department in the College of Education is creating a mobile innovations lab and maker space to take to rural low income schools in our community. The mobile lab will visit local schools and community events and allow people to participate in maker space activities and interact with innovative technologies. If you aren't familiar with maker spaces, more information can be found
here. The mobile lab will look something like this.Through grant funding, we hope to leave schools with the resources they need to start their own maker space. We need your help with naming this project. You may suggest up to three names.  If your name is chosen, you could win a $50 Amazon gift card. The contest ends Wednesday April 18.
