Teacher Workshop on March 31 - Fab Lab Challenge – The Engineering Design Process Workshop - During this workshop, teachers will engage in a hands-on engineering challenge, working in teams to design, prototype,
and test their projects. Challenges are designed to use basic making materials as well as digital fabrication machines (such as the laser cutter, vinyl cutter, or 3D printer),
so that teams are introduced to the software and hardware capabilities of the Fab Lab. Teachers will reflect on the cycle of engineering and leave with Engineering Design
Process resources to use in their classrooms. This workshop will be held at Carnegie Science Center in the FabLab
located inside Sportsworks from 10a – 11:30a Space is limited to 40 attendees. Reserve your spot at

Why do you bring your students to the Science Fair?
Science fairs bring out the best in my students - this is where they learn to think and communicate. Middle School Teacher
Great exposure, great competition, great awards. High School Teacher
The kids enjoy it... to put scientific fundamentals into practice... to challenge students in the area of science. Homeschool Teacher
Over the years we've had some fantastic projects at our school science fair. I felt these projects deserved more attention than our small school could offer. PRSEF offers that opportunity. It will also strengthen our STEM program. - New Teacher
