Help us bring makerspaces across the nation come to life! Join us in congratulating this year’s CTE Makeover Challenge winners and learn how you can participate in the National Week of Making, including an exclusive t-shirt by Printrbot!

We are excited to share that the U.S. Department of Education announced the ten prize winners in the CTE Makeover Challenge. We are thrilled to serve as a sponsor for this novel initiative from the Department to inspire high schools to design makerspaces. Johan Uvin, Acting Assistant Secretary for Career, Technical, and Adult Education, announced the prize winners at the White House Champions of Change event on June 17th.

The Challenge launched in March, calling on high schools to design makerspaces that will provide students the opportunity to design, build, and innovate, helping them hone critical 21st century career skills. The participation in the Challenge was outstanding, and over 640 schools from all 50 states and Washington, D.C. entered. Eligible schools were invited to participate in a 6-week Bootcamp program to further develop their makerspace ideas, and submit their final plans to be considered for prizes.

Congratulations to the winning schools!
