Sierra Makerspaces supports STEAM Academy at Tahoe Truckee USD

A STEAM Academy sponsored by Tahoe Truckee USD was held August 13-18, 2018 for 20 middle school students at the Truckee Roundhouse, a Sierra Makerspaces partner site.  Students experienced project-based activities in 3D printing, CNC routing, CNC laser engraving and cutting, eTextiles, and CNC plasma cutting. The Sierra College Student Maker in Residence and three Sierra Makerspaces interns helped staff the event.  The academy provided scaffolded opportunities for leadership as some of the interns had graduated from the middle school and were now dual enrolled at Truckee or North Tahoe High School and Sierra College.
