BUILD (Building Unique and Innovative Lab Designs) is a project-based volunteer opportunity that provides high school students with an innovative way to earn volunteer hours while exploring the different ways to get involved at the Fab Lab. Access to state-of-the-art equipment and tools at the Fab Lab allows volunteers to develop technical skills that will benefit them as they get more involved at the lab. From designing and constructing a robot mailbox to programming Arduino microcontroller, there's a BUILD project to suit all interests. Volunteers must commit to meeting once per week for a month-long project. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for multiple sessions to maximize learning!
