Applied Technology and Engineering Center (ATEC)

Cable-Burns ATEC

INDEPENDENCE, CREATIVITY, INNOVATION, COMMUNITY

Purpose

We will initiate programs at ATEC that foster independence, creativity, innovation and community with an emphasis on independence – the anchor concept of the DIY and maker movements. We would like students and participants to gain a sense of “agency” to know that they have the capacity to shape their own world, and to foster the inclination to do so. When programs take place with partnerships in the community, all participants learn a new level of collaboration, and can more deeply explore complex problems.
