Exhibit: Making Youth Entrepreneurship: Combining entrepreneurial and STEM skills into meaningful projects


We have been working deliberately over the past two years to integrate making and STEM into our current programming. Several projects, Lemonade Day and a pilot program through the City of New Castle's Blueprint Communities Initiative, will be featured. These programs both have resulted in multiple partnerships between municipalities, school districts, and non-profits to create meaningful and visible projects which have a high degree of visibility in the communities in which they have occurred. As part of these programs students have participated in activities including creative re-use, 3D printing, laser cutting, paper circuits, and vinyl cutting.
