CTE Makeover Challenge Announced

 

The U.S. Department of Education invites schools to enter the CTE Makeover Challenge by submitting a design for a CTE makerspace. Makerspaces provide students the materials and environment they need to create, invent, tinker, and explore, helping them build vital career skills, including critical thinking, planning, communication, and problem solving.

All eligible schools will gain access to the CTE Makeover Bootcamp, a 6-week program that provides resources and expertise in makerspace design and lesson planning. Up to 10 honorees will each receive $20,000 in cash and other prizes to turn their vision for a makerspace into a reality.
