Due to the success of the MakerNurse Medical MakerHealth Space Lab, supported by a 2015 President’s Cabinet grant, this project seeks to create a similar lab at Galveston’s Ball High School to provide higher level learning experiences to the next generation of healthcare, research and biomedical science workers. This fabrication laboratory (Fab Lab) will combine tools and materials for woodworking, metalworking, electronics, robotics, textiles, computers and soft circuits and will become part of the school’s career and technology education program. This dedicated space will also be accessible to middle school students.
