Connecting young people with business and industry is essential to creating relevant, hands-on
learning opportunities and career exploration in STEM/CTE fields. Industry professionals play a
critical role in making STEM/CTE learning come alive!
Makerspaces are collaborative workspaces inside a school, library,
or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring,
and sharing that use high-tech to no-tech tools.
