From Innovation Lab Makerspace:

We are thrilled to announce a free summer makerspace workshop for our campus community, open to all faculty, staff, students, and youths aged 11 and up. With a vision to inspire the next generation, our Computer Science & Engineering programs strive to shift young minds from being mere consumers and spectators of technology to becoming its active architects and creators.

This friendly social-maker activity offers an exciting hands-on experience with electronics. What you build, you take home, making this the perfect introduction to engineering and Seattle University. At its core, it's simple—no lectures or mandatory activities—just a fun, engaging and interactive learning experience.

Why are we doing this? This engaging platform represents a partnership effort between Seattle University and the City of Seattle’s Youth Employment Program (SYEP). SYEP interns lead the electronic maker activity, designed to stimulate your curiosity and creativity. It provides SYEP interns with valuable professional skills and job readiness while helping us deepen our understanding and connection with the communities we serve.

We are excited to invite you to join us! Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with high-tech electronics and soldering—that's perfect! We'll provide all the materials you need - transistors, resistors, capacitors and wander all provided free!  

Redhawk Rainbow LED DIY Kits and other kits can be assembled by you and soldered by the Redhawk Robot or manually soldered by you—learn to solder. The Rainbow Kit was designed by a student, and we can show you how it was designed in minutes. It may not be as hard as you think to design electronics.
