For the first time, Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library collaborated with Upward Bound to provide students exposure to different fields of technology and the opportunity to use the MakerLab, a 3-D printing service, to design and create their own projects. 

Mark Despain, liaison for NAU’s First Scholars program, wanted to incorporate more technology into the STEM curriculum for Upward Bound, and he knew Cline Library had 3-D printing. He contacted Janet Crum from library technology services, and she arranged the collaboration between Cline and Upward Bound.

This summer, students had the opportunity to learn about 3-D printing, building circuits and video production.

Through these projects, the students developed critical skills, such as teamwork and time management.
