Project Lit Community Book Club
The Project Lit Community Book Club continues to meet monthly at lunch in the library to discuss Project Lit recommended titles. Here is the line up for 2021/2022!
The Future of Making is here!
Before spring break, the MakerSpace CORE Club had the chance to hear from a guest speaker from Lee Verage which uses Fusion360, Autodesk’s 3D modelling software that students are learning to use, in a workplace setting. He spoke about the need for designers to create products that are durable, recyclable, customizable, and repairable to keep up with population demands in a way that respects God’s earth and avoids the depletion of natural resources. He challenged RCS student makers to consider what role they might play in a more sustainably designed future!
