Workshops + Open Making Hours

Thanks to the generosity of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Goodyear, CMSD is proud to open the East Professional Center Digital Fabrication + STEM Lab for the 2019-2020 school year.  The Lab will be used to host workshops and making hours for CMSD teachers and staff to learn how to use these technologies and incorporate them into their classrooms.


Digital Fabrication Workshops are designed for any CMSD employee who would like to learn more about a Fab Lab technology to use in their school.  The workshops are designed for beginners, so if you feel like you already know how to use a piece of fab lab equipment, please reach out to the lab manager to discuss it.  The workshops happen over the course of an academic quarter and get you ready to use the Fab Lab equipment in your school.  See our Lending Library for more info. 

Workshops Include:

  • 3D Printing
  • Vinyl Cutting
  • Electronics 
    • Paper Circuits
    • Makey Makey
    • Arduinos
  • Laser Cutting 
  • Design thinking in your classroom- how to make with kids in a crazy and constructive way


Stop by for a tour of the CMSD Fab Lab and see what is possible!

Open Lab Time is kind of like office hours.  Come by to ask questions, learn about machines, use a machine you’re already trained on, etc. This is also a great time to talk about project ideas.

The workshops and open lab time are FREE and VOLUNTARY for any CMSD teacher and are not through the office of PD. If a CMSD teacher would like to use these workshops for VPD, they may do so if and only if previously approved by their principal and chapter chair.  Please inquire for a Certificate of Participation.
