- Use a STEAM (science, technology, art, and math) framework to map creative approaches to core content needs.

- Implement 3D printing software programs, computational thinking activities, green screen, and other STEM programs.

- Connect with top scientists, educators, engineers, artists, and community organizers to share best practices for achieving community buy-in.

- Identify funding opportunities and gain insights about how to connect your organization's makerspace to community partners.
