From the U. of Virginia Library:
The Library is thrilled to announce the 2020 inaugural cohort of the Women’s Maker Program, sponsored by the Charles L. Brown Endowment, the Robertson Media Center, and the UVA Library. The program aims to increase participants’ confidence and interest in STEM and makerspace technologies, improve their sense of belonging in the field, and better prepare them for future careers in the STEM workforce. In addition, the Library hopes to improve gender equality by ensuring that library makerspaces are inclusive spaces for all.
The cohort will spend the Spring 2020 semester diving into maker technologies, learning design thinking, helping host a maker camp for local Girl Scouts, and completing two community-focused projects.
