Mayor’s Summer Works at LVL1

//

Over the summer, member Divinity Rose coached a team of Junior Achievers as they worked to develop their technology based product and startup “Sensor Buddies.”  The team was being paid as part of the Mayor’s Summer Works program that employed 4200 youth over the summer. The team of three 17-year-old students from Central High School learned to solder and use many of our resources, including the wood shop, vinyl cutter, and laser cutter.

Their experiences at Lvl 1 facilitated growth, confidence building, and creative problem solving; it was so inspiring to see each of their individual strengths blossom. You can see their summary of the summer in the video below.

We look forward to seeing what they accomplish this year as senior in the business magnet program at Central High School with their teacher Dana Kelly. Thank you Mayor Fischer for facilitating such a great program.

 

Getting Started at LVL1

//

We are often asked how to get involved and use the tools, space or just hang around makers. So how does one go about getting help? Or being involved? Or use a bandsaw or laser cutter? (hint visit the WIKI and look for the equipment page)

First, visit the space! We are an open community and offer access to anyone when members are present. LVL1’s calendar includes many recurring events such as our weekly open meeting Tuesdays at 8PM.

So what are you waiting for? Join us!
