Some (any)thing for everyone

The Computer Science freshman success community visited the space to see what they might be interested in making. It was helpful to have lots of options when it comes to creating printed objects (coding from scratch, using building block programs, borrowing designs from people around the world). This combine with the virtual reality equipment makes for a great resource for UMB students.

Thanks to the MakerSpace team for making Tech Savvy CS day at UMB a success!

Instructor presents to students sitting at a table with laptopsProfessor Wei Ding, Yong Zhuang, and I want to thank you again for your efforts in planning and hosting educational sessions on 3D printing and VR for the students attending the Computer Science day at UMass Boston as part of the 2017 Tech Savvy Conference this summer. The Boston Area Girls STEM Collaborative emailed our group with very positive feedback that they received on the program from the girls who attended, and events like those you held at the MakerSpace were a big part of that positive experience. The program wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of the volunteers, and we’re really happy we could have you among them this year — you were receptive to ideas and very responsive the whole time we worked together. And you did a great job modeling and printing the favors as well!

So again, we really appreciate all the planning and time that went into making that a memorable experience for the girls that attended the conference. It was a pleasure working with you!

All the Best,
Matthew Almeida
